I hope you're ready Japan!
I got my Guarantee Form yesterday! Basically that means that I am going to Japan!
First a couple updates: I am going to Kochi! I will be sponsored by the Kochi West Rotary clib. My first host father goes by the name of Nishioka Tateo. So although I haven't actually talked with Tateo-sen I have been told that he has two teenaged sons. And that his wife speaks English pretty well. I've also been told that he lives they live in Yanomaru Aki City. It's a scenic beautiful little fishing town right on the beach.
I will also be attending Yurie's school! Tosajoshi High School in Kochi. It is an all girl school, which should be totally cool. I mean this is a major difference than what I'm used to. Culture Shock anyone?
Today I also found out my flight details:
August 15th: *Northwest Airlines 9:08 Newark to Detroit
- 4 hour layover
*Northwest Airlines 2:30 Detroit to Tokyo
August 16th: -Lands in Tokyo and stays the night
August 17th: *All Nippon Airways 8:45 Tokyo to Kochi
So when my mom sprung the whole guarantee form and packet on me I was soo happy! I am going now! I can't wait. More when I hear soon!
