I love Japan, but not the keyboard on the computer. All of the punctuation keys are in the wrong place. I have had some interesting experiences so far such as eating raw squid, bathing in an onsen, eating a tradtional meal where you sit on the floor in a kimono and eat a ton of food. You also have to kneel and bow to enter. I have perfected the bow and greeting and I have spent a few days with royalty..and that is not a joke. I have learned the term for a cute guy and I have talked about the terms hot and sexy with two very kind Japanese gentlemen. That was by far a most interesting converation. Oh and I got a modern tour of Tokyo at night for a Polish guy! I have to run to change for dinner, but I hope to update again soon. If not well you will have to wait for winter break seeing as how i must fight jet lag and write a paper and put together a presentation upon returning to the states. If you have any questions please let me know and i will try to answer them.
