Sorry about the delay, I've been doing a lot of sight-seeing lately! It's great here in Okinawa! I went on a Monorail today to Naha airport, it was really nice. I stayed at the airport for a while, just taking in the sights and people and everything about the place that I could see. I went shopping on Kokusai-dori (International Street) It was really nice there, I could not believe the amount of shops and things they had there. Yesterday I swam in the ocean and ate taco-rice from a stand near the beach, that was pretty interesting, it is exactly what it sounds like, taco meat with lettuce and tomatoes, on top of rice. I went to Okinawa World also, it was really cool, I watched eisa being performed, that was so COOL! I've never been so entranced by anything before! Eisa is a traditional Okinawan dance with drums and dancers. (Go here
for a better description!) Before yesterday, all I've been doing is going to school everyday. School here is so different! The students for the most part stay in one class all day and the teachers move rooms. I don't know enough written Japanese to pass in anything so I mainly just practice writing kanji over and over again and I read a book on how to speak Japanese. Well, I can't use my host families computer for very long, so I've got to finish this up! I'll try to update again soon and get some pictures put into my gallery! Laters!
