Home stay weekend has come upon us. There are many things to be found out here in Saitama Prefecture, among them; detached homes, open fields, and cars not driven by taxi drivers. The Internet however - is not one of them. And so this blog is going to be an amalgamation of two days of creativity, oh goody!
Let us begin by saying that I have without a doubt won the home stay lottery. But before I write you a novel about how I have decided to permanently move in with “Mama” and the girls, I feel like we have some catching up to do. It’s been a week since I last checked in and for those of you who have become frequent readers, it’s probably starting to feel reminiscent of the month-long breaks between new episodes of your favorite primetime drama. And I would hate to be the cause of any of your co-worker aimed meltdowns as you go into extra-redundant blog withdrawal. Fear not, the wait is over.
We left off with Yang Sensei and his extraordinary okonomiyaki flipping skills. Since last Thursday, much has occurred. And I fear that due to our broad audience, it is in everyone’s best interest that we keep this entry PG-13. For those of you interested in the gruesome details, you’ll have to wait a few weeks and join me back at Utah Drive for a brew of either the leaf or hops variety. The picture format seemed to work wonders for us last time, so let us continue.
So for starters we have some Kenshukan Dorm home décor shots – bedroom, closet, top bunk, desk – all the essentials of the study abroad student lifestyle.
