It`s been a week since I`ve been in Japan and I`m still alive. The first week went by so fast. My host family is cool. My host father works at Toyota and is obsessed with fishing. I have two host sister, Atsuyo is a living at the Nanzan dorm and Yoko is a teacher. On tuesday they took me to the Aichi World Expo. There were sooo many people. Wednesday orientation was cancelled due to the typhoon. Yesterday was the first time I was at Nanzan…all we did was fill out forms…I swear I used to think that France was the most beaucratic country but now I:m convinced that Japan is. My commute is interesting…I have a thirty minute bike ride..then a train ride…then subway..then i have to climb up this huge hill…I might actually have to do physical exertion on a regular basis…
