Thousands of Miles from Home


Get to Class

Every Wednesday I take an hour bus ride to the city, my ultimate destination being the Okayama Institute of Languages. I am joined by the other Rotary exchange students in Okayama prefecture, Janna and Cori. Class runs from 1:30 to 4:30, and we usually go out to lunch (and often dinner) together before and after school. Our teacher, Kimura-sensei, is consistently outgoing and happy about teaching us japanese. She knows enough english to make the class hilarious every week, as we all try to explain ourselves in a mix of japanese, english, janglish, and latin (latin is often omitted).

The best part about Japanese school is that it is completely payed for by the Tamano, Tsuyama, and Okayama rotary clubs. Also, it gives me a chance to get out of Tamano and into a (pretty big) city. The pictures are from our party held in honor of finishing the first japanese book in record time.
