Never thought I'd miss my nans van as much as I do now that I'm in Japan.
Every morning I wake up at 5 in the morning to get ready for school. I catch the 7:20 train and walk around 30 minutes to get to school. The sun is scorching and I an feel the sweat and fabric make contact.
I miss nans van.
I miss nan.
I miss being able to sleep in until 8 in the morning, put on my uniform and just jump in the van.
The Good, Bad and Never Hungry
I arrived in Japan at around 4pm. My hands were all sweaty from the landing but I made it. 10 hours of what felt like 24 were finally up and I am glad it is over.
The first day consisted of taking too many trains to destinations we didn't know. Then switching trains because we got on the wrong ones. Sometimes there were no escalators in the station and so all 7 of us had to carry bags that weighed around 20kgs up two flights of stairs. (thank you to the nice lady who helped Fill out) I really do feel like my right arm has gotten a lot bigger.
Although we walked for a VERY VERY long time, it came to an end as we approached our building. We approached it, but couldn't get inside it. We were given the wrong pin and as Durr Sensei says, "give the owner a low rating". Honestly, I was ready to just kick it on the street. It was tiring walking and now waiting for the lady who owned the place to reply to our messages. We got in, eventually.
