Ishida House, Matsudo

Cripes it's late. More typing tomorrow.


In the morning we did a songbird workshop with Kate and Simon. Two solid hours of songbirds, that was something of a workout.

During class, we composed five week-long "tours" of North America. We wrote the out in Japanese, and presented them to some very patient teachers at the Nihongo Institute.

After class, all of us interns went out to East Shinjuku. We got some puri-kuri (those weird sparkly photo booths, at least that's what I think they're called), played some arcade games, and went out to dinner. They all went off to Roppongi to pull an all-nighter clubbing, but I figured that wouldn't be the best thing for me to do to stop being sick. It still took me until after midnight to get home, I think I got the last train.

You party animal!

Hang in there. Your immune system has taken a huge hit, between the vaccinations, travel, new environment and sleep deprivation. Keep eating good stuff, drinking lots of water, and let your body do what it's built to do, and you'll be running around in Akihabara before you know it!

And if nothing else works... have your host mom help you fix the dreaded Final Solution: couple cloves of garlic, a knob of grated ginger, a dash of cayenne, a spoonful of honey, and orange juice. Never fails!

I say try some cold medicine. Works every time for me.
Maybe you have allergies?
Im glad everything is ok after the earthquake.

About the little girls dog. Some dogs learn their name quicker then others. At least in real life. Maybe there is a way to play with it, calling it by name to help it learn.
