First off I would like to make a shout out to Clark who was so inspired by my onigiri (rice ball) eating skills that she made a comic that I would like to share with you.
Alright so today we had regular lecture BUT we didn’t have a field trip so we had the entire afternoon to ourselves. I came home for lunch and made one of my individual rice packets with some chicken, it looked really weird but it was a lot better then the rice back home, the down side was I couldn’t read the instructions so it was interesting trying to cook it.
Tim was very generous and brought me a banana flavored ice cream she had bought from 7-11, why don’t we have these back home?
Tony, Tim, Clark and I had lunch at my place then we headed to Kyoto station to browse the immense network of shops they have above the subway. I gave my self a limit on how much I was allowed to spend today, and boy I did not have any problem spending it!
Tim and Clark then moved on to Aeon mall while Tony and I stayed at the station and had dinner together before heading home.
I tried to get the restaurant we ate at in the background but it didn’t work >.<
Once I got home I tried to write my journal for class but it didn’t go so well, eventually our group gathered in my room and we hung out for the evening. I have to admit that there is some stuff going on in my personal life back home that I have had to deal with during my time here. It has become an annoyance, especially after tonight, so for the remainder of the trip I am going to focus on the people who are here and not worry about that stuff.
On a side note…Toilets here are very different and have a bunch of odd options.
There are also squatting toilets…they are quite the experience.
