two tourists in tokyo and i
“what no! i told u we’re lost!!….”
“..let’s ask taht guy over there….”
“wait no i asked last time you ask this time..”
“um… hi .. hello? we …”
“i speak english…”
“oh thank god!”
and then i proceed to give them directions and as they thank me and are about to leave one goes “your English is excellent!”
in retrospect, i shouldn’t told them i speak english. ahah i should have let it play out and messed with their heads. 🙂
i just got to my apartment. before i go into how AWESOME my apartment is I would like to share with you the first thing I saw when I got on the bus from the airport – a love hotel called “First Wood.” i was thinking to myself, yep im in japan. i actually provided the link to love hotel, inside of trying to explain it in order to avoid sounding like a ex-pat, which i am, kind of, well yes, kind of no, ug.
anyways my apartment is STACKED son! its got a full size bed + every single kind of ameniti you can think of. there’s pretty nothing i need to buy! WOHOOO. its got a cd player, fax machine (uh..?), tv, cool lamps, table, chairs, frig, stove top, awesome shower, awesome toilet (yes the kind that sprays your assh*le with water), vacuum, cabinets, nice lighting, fancy feel. plus i got 2 bottles of water, mini travel shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel bottels, q-tips, soap, towels, laundry machine, laundry deterrgent, etc etc etc.
and as my mother so annoyingly reminded me on skype just right now, “they aint giving you the apartment for free. they expect that much in return.”
im so excited to work!
miss you all 🙂
