people per square inch
Ive been kind of lazy about the blog lately, so here goes.
The first week of school was fantastic. Ive got my students in a good groove. Monday we start the real work. Friday was school spirit day, so we had an assembly and did some activities. The assisntant principal asked the kids why we have "spirit" and a little first grader answered something like "because we are school of people from all over the world and friends".
Ive been told by kids all over that I look like shaggy. Im starting to hear that I look like Beckham (footballer).
I took the train into Tokyo yesterday to shop around for a bike. No dice on the bike so Ill have to order it from the states, but I did find the apple store in Ginza (super busy shopping district and $$$$). It was amazingly busy, swarming people. Crowds here are very polite and quiet though. If people bump into you, you hear "sumimasen" or "gomenazai". The apple store was packed, and must have been raking in the money. Everyone was buying the new ipods. There were probably 200 people in the store. Really. I felt claustrophobic.
On the train home there was a schoolgirl in that outfit (made famous by anime and perverts) with her longbow. The bow was in a sort of cozy with little cartoon characters on it.
Im meeting a girl for language exchange today in Yokohama. I really need to start learning some Japanese. Its frustrating to be illiterate unable to talk.
anyway, thats all fer now
