--- ENTRY STILL IN PROGRESS ---
October 13th, 2018
So this week was pretty ... I don't even know. It was not boring! I took 2 of the mid-term exams (=Shiken) and on Friday we could finally celebrate that test week is over! You should definitely read to the end if you want to know how I ended up in the United States for a day (or two? (No, it was just a few sweet hours, but adding the words "or two?" makes it sound more dramatic, right :P?).
Monday (October 8th, 2018):
You've been patient, guys. Now here's the story of how I took a short time trip to the U.S.:
"Short time trip to the United States? - Are you serious -.-?"
"Yeah, sure! I mean - it was not actually on the North American continent but in Japan. And the area probably belongs to the Japanese State. And not only Americans live there. But like... America.... yaaaaay?"
Yes, guys, it's true. I've been to the United States of America. Or at least that was what it felt like when I entered Camp Zama, an American military base in Zama, Japan. And it's actually so close to my (Japanese) home!
Two teachers, the principal (he looks so friendly!!) and the students who were interested in going to the Camp to be part of the Zama High School Homecoming Parade after the mid-term exam week was finally over met at a station and entered the seperated area. We had to show our student cards! (And we non-Japanese students tell our passport number ^^). The whole area, I can't even comprehend how vast it is, is clean, beautiful and yeah, looks different than the rest of the (Japanese) city. It was astonishing. Seriously.
I want to wrap this up now, so less words, more content
It was just a different feeling. We were entering the USA for one day. And both, the Italian girl and I felt like: "Ah, I wish I could make another exchange to the US." Just overwhelming. Of course we appreciate the time in Japan, but just experiencing what we've always seen in movies is just ...
So here the pictures you all waited for :P
