This week, my husband and I are completing our Overseas Area Orientation Brief here in Japan. Today we went on a brief tour of Yokosuka, got dropped off at the JR line for a Kamakura, went out to lunch for Indian food at a delicious local restaurant called Nirvana, got a hair cut and signed rental documents for our soon-to-be Japanese home. (This is where you’d hear me squealing with excitement!) All before picking up our children from school, preschool and childcare to attend overseas training classes. I think I’ll go back to the hotel with my children , relax and enjoy the rest of the afternoon! And dry off, too. It’s turned into a very rainy afternoon; which I like since it makes me feel like I’m back at home in the Seattle area. This rain helps cure my culture shock, which I’ve been denying until now that I’ve been feeling.
