new diggs

On Monday I moved in with my new host family. I’m living with a couple who has 2 grown up sons. They’ve always wanted a daughter. And I’m it.

success! getting ready for the picture

Anyway, they are really nice. Akira (my dad) picked me up in a Canada shirt with a flag and Montreal across the bottom. Turns out the year he retired they spent three weeks touring in Canada. I love how they’ve seen more of the country than I have. So it’s been fun so far. I mean, totally different than life with Nachan, but if I want to go out I can sleep at the office. Now I have my own room, and more food than I know what to do with. At least the walk from the station is good exercise…
right, so I’m not living in Nagasaki proper anymore – I live in a suburb called Nagoya Nagayo. It takes 40 minutes to get here. Most of it is walking (there’s a 10 minute train ride). I walk by this crazy slide every day — we’re supposed to go on it tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it is.

    I should point out, that my agenda book has maps at the back. And in these maps, you can see the city of Nagoya, but not Nagasaki.

    So basically, as far as Brownline Agendas are concerned, you have officially moved up in the world!

    Jeff…what kind of a map do you have? Even Yahoo weather lists Nagasaki!

    Nagayo != Nagoya
    I guess I’m more dyslexic than I realize.

    oh… it doesn’t have Nagayo.
