Now I am at the tokyo airport waiting for my flight. I didn’t sleep the entire way here and now it is catching up to me. I also just bought my first thing from Japan- water!
I realized that buying some sort of food that is foreign to the country will not taste the same as you always had. What I found out was about hot dogs... definitely different and from now on going to stick to the Japanese food only. I also got ketchup on my shirt, go me.
First day here was my meeting with the rotary club, which takes place in the Sapporo Park Hotel. It is made up of all men which is very different to Canmore. I had to make a speech but i didn’t say much since i don’t speak japanese
It is extremey humid here, alot different then Canmore. I wonder what the winter will be like, being humid and cold. The cars here are really different as well. They are alot smaller and flat in the back. I think that is so they can fit better into parking lots. Even the vans are smaller and have a flat back. I would love to see an Albertan big weeler roll down these streets. Would make my life.
Yesterday I was super tired because everything caught up to me. I didn’t do much other then get insurance and go for a walk around hokkaido university. There motto is “boy’s with ambition”, confused that girls had no ambition. The interesting part was that we had lunch at Big Boy. First time ever eating at that place and it happens to be in Japan.
Today I went to the hokkaido shopping centre which is to big to imagine
