I had a nice post written but then my computer froze! I was hoping my writing would somehow have stayed here....oh well. I'm really behind, so I apologize. I know I have to:
1. Finish about scavenger hunt
2. Explain Tomo's concert.
3. Talk about my eating experience in Shinjuku
4. Post pics from Nikko and Kamakura.
5. Give you all details about my two Japanese families and homes!!
CIEE is traveling to a Japanese elementary school Friday. We have been broken into random groups to give different presentations to various grades. My partner Lillian (Nanny!) and I were assigned to a 5th grade class, and have decided to discuss the various backgrounds and cultures present in America. We'll use famous Americans as examples and, at the end, show how Japan has had an influence as well (Ichiro, Last Samurai, sushi places, etc). In addition, to open the program, I will have to give some kind of presentation in front of the whole school. Another gakusei and I will meet tomorrow to decided what to say....ack!
I registered for classes today....the classes start Monday but, for some really out there reason, we won't find out which classes we get until Tuesday. Don't ask, because I don't know. But here's what I signed up for:
1. Japanese (really?!)
2. Basic Chinese (kanji lessons=good)
3. Japanese Management
4. Japanese Civilization
5. Tokyo Urbanism
Sorry for the tsumaranai entries.....I'll try to work on it later this week. Oh! and a few guys and I may try to go to a Japanese baseball game Saturday! I'd trade it and alot else to see the Mets in the playoffs next week though....it's ok. I'll survive.
