So this weekend was the Jazz Festival in Sendai City. Two JETs (Rothgeb and Lindsay) from the D.C. group came up to Sendai for the party and we all hung out on Saturday night. The weekend was yet another incredible experience in the city and included the following: Japanese jazz/pop/rock bands live in the street, karaoke + nomihodai, McDonalds (there aren’t any where I live), sleeping in an Internet Cafe, Street Fighter IV, rain, shopping malls, international food stores, more music, back to Osato.
All in all, the weekend was incredible and the fact that there was no school on Monday made it even sweeter. Today is “Respect for the Aged Day” which is a national holiday in Japan. This upcoming week of school may be shorter but I bet I’ll be busier than before. I am starting to help coach the soccer team and I have to organize my “Idiom of the Week” board.
Please, if you have any good idioms that you use all the time or sound pretty funny post them as a comment to this blog entry. I think my first one is either going to be “…the apple of my eye” or “…like two peas in a pod.” The next entry will be a synopsis of the adventure of getting the idiom board set up. Again, send me some ideas for the idiom board if you will.
