I had fun with my next host sister today. She showed me how to get to school. Then we went to Tenoji for window shopping. In Tenoji we found a cooking/baking studio where we got a free ticket to come in an try sometime. After that we ate the most delicious Chinese food I've ever had in my life. Then we went to Namba where she took me to the "America Village." I didn't know such a place existed. It was very interesting. We talked about fun things we're going to do together like going bowling, or to karaoke, having Christmas and new years parties, baking, dancing etc. We eventually made our way back to the house where we ate good sweets and watch a little TV. Then my next host dad drove me home. When I got home, one of the neighbors stop by to drop of an early Christmas present and a card. I was very glad not only because I received the present but also because I could understand the card. It read:
“Jessany-chan, Your Japanese is very good. It’s been great knowing you. You’re always energetic. Please do your best!! I hope you enjoy your presents.” – Watanabe Nao
Today was truly a great day. Tomorrow I will go to Wakayama with my host mom and grandma for a shrine festival. This one will be really big. I’ll even get to witness Sumo wrestling :) I can’t wait!!
