A Couple of Awaited Answers

Josh--a company that you know very very very very well. I don't even think you'll need the hint: OOO. /me grins

Karri--good question! Travelling around is always fun. The Keihan train line runs from Osaka to Kyoto, and my entire life seems to run along it. It's the train I take to get to and from school, and it provides a lot of fun adventures as well. During orientation week we took a trip to Kyoto which was a lot of fun. The school matched up international students like me with native Japanese students. I even have some pictures! ^_^

Fun before the trip even starts! I wish I could remember their names, but I can't. >_<

We took the Keihan line to Kyoto and had some time to kill at the station. Group picture time! In Japan "tall people in the back!" means "foreigners in the back!", hehe. I feel pretty tall here, especially when surrounded by Japanese people. At almost 5'8" I'm taller than just about every Japanese woman and as tall as half the men. Even at this wimpy height I have to duck doors sometimes--I wonder how my 6'5" friend deals with it everyday.

The main attraction of our trip was a shrine. This picture is actually from the front gate, looking back out onto the street.

And here is *part* of the inside of the shrine. Easily the most green I've seen in Japan in one place. Suppossedly in fall (which isn't September--it's still in the high 80s here) the entire place goes red and gold. I'm hoping to return for more photos. ^_^ It was really quiet and peaceful inside--another world.

And before I go, I have a note from my mom! Here it is verbatim:

Tell all I am soooooooo happy for you!!!! To be able to do this is a once in life time event and I am sooooooooo proud of you!!!! I am fine, I do not know why people keep asking that.

So there you go, for all of you wondering how my mom is holding up, hehe.

I have ceramics class in just a few minutes, so off I go! Take care, everyone!
