I'm back from Japan!

Ohayou gozaimasu all (It's morning right now),

I came back yesterday from Japan to the US via Osaka. It's been 13 days since I've had any access to a comp and it feels good. Scary enough, my first thought when I got to San Fran was not, "What is that strange language I'm hearing? I think it's called English or something" (That was my second thought ^_^). My first thought was
"OMG white people!"

Memorable things: I'd say that accidentally shredding my rail pass in the washing machine was incredibly memorable. My roomie in Kyoto made the toilet overflow in the hotel. An idiot who shall remain nameless got himself lost in a wave of Japanese people after the *humongous* fireworks show in Iwakuni (Yamaguchi-ken). Another idiot who shall remain nameless accidentaly left his wallet on the shinkansen from Kyoto-Himeji. Our teacher had to take the Shikansen back to Kyoto to get the wallet back.

All and all, I had a lot of fun, and I'm hoping to upload a few pictures including a picture of a pair of foriegners in yukata.

Ja~~~ Ne! ^_^
Best blond moment (said to a Japanese person):

\"Can you understand Anime without the subtitles on?\"

*sigh* I wish I could claim that one!
