I'm not dead - I'll reply to your emails soon
There's a lot that can be said about my first two and a half weeks in Japan, but you'll have to trust me when I say it's been very busy and a lot of fun. Maybe I'll recount it all at a later date. As of now you'll have to settle for some bullet points:
* Japan is hot
* my job is very, very easy (I haven't started teaching though)
* the food is amazing
* Japanese people looove to drink
* I've met tons of nice people
I think my next post will be a tour of my apartment in pictures...watch for Flickr updates.
See you next time.
