What I see around Iwakura (my neighborhood) and more.
I met with a lot of patient people lately!
The guy at Seven Eleven today did not speak English but still tried his best explaining about a lot of things. Such as how to activate my phone. He also asked how long I am going to stay in Japan and whether I’ve been enjoying my time here up until now.
At stores, it sometimes takes me a while to count the money that I am paying. Coins are very useful here, and people often help me count them or praise me when I do it right…
Being in Japan I get a great opportunity to improve my use of chopsticks (hashi), considering forks and knives are nowhere to be found most of the time. Well, that’s alright for most things, but i do need to buy some big spoons because i do not enjoy eating my salad with chopsticks, sorry.
I do have to get some other things too. Up high on my list are: A pillow, pan, pot, cups, cooking oil (MUST get Olive Oil!!), big bowl. I’m probably forgetting something, right?
