The official word is here! I leave for Tokyo on September 8. I spend six months there learning Japanese and whatever else they can stuff into my head in such a short time. After that I will be assigned to an ESL teaching job … somewhere. That I won’t know for awhile.
However, today I got a couple emails about what to bring/not to bring, etc. The apartment supplied for me by the Japan church (JELC) will be furnished better than I had in Dbq! And I know that there will be four of us total going to Tokyo for this program. Since the program is called J-3, we’re collectively called the “J-3ers.” Original.
More as it comes …
Hey there! So this Japan-bound lass on the way to the Land of the Green Tea (o-cha) has chosen green as the color of her blog, how appropriate! BTW, you gotten used to eating raw fish yet?
Furnished better than in Dbq??? So, now we see the real incentive to go to Japan: a new couch!
Why J-3? Is it because there will be four of you? If so, that really doesn’t make sense.
