Konnichi-wa to my firends from the purple risu (squirrel) here in Japan! (See? I’m learning Japanese already! LOL!)
This one will have to be a short update since I’m in the library on base, but I thought I’d put out a little more info in responce to my last blog’s comments.
I have started taking pictures now that I’ve started venturing into town, but until I have a place to live, I don’t think I’ll be able to post anything. All public computers are on lockdown to anything but a CD, and all my photo stuff is designed to hook up to USB. I’m going to see if I can find a photo place in town that will make a CD (pronounced shee-dee in Japanese, no joke).
Feeling a bit homesick, I went into the McDonalds today. They have a shrimp burger! I think maybe next time I’ll be brave, but I chickened out today and got chicken (no pun).
Important Japanese phrase for the day:
Kore wa nan desu ka? = What is this? (this = closest to me)
There are only a few ways to pronounce Japanese, e=eh, a=ah, o=oh, i=ee, and the u at the end of a word is silent, it just means your drag out the letter in front of it. So: “Kohreh wah nahn dess kah?”
I miss you guys so much!
