Finally, I have been able to swim through Japanese bureaucracy to get myself an internet connection! Other than that lack of communication, everything else has been fabulous, though. Teaching English is better than I could have hoped for, my school is great, the staff and other teachers are wonderful, and most of all, the students are really fun to teach. I got myself a bicycle (see above) and with that it seems like I can go anywhere I want to in half an hour. Above you’ll see some pictures I took a few weeks ago along the Yada river. OK, now I’ll start updating often, I promise.
