Japan day 7

After having some cereal for breakfast, my host father dropped me off at the hotel where our group met up once again. At this point, I had the unfortunate responsibility of advising a child that her grandmother had passed away. Luckily the student had said her goodbyes before he left for Japan, while she was a bit sad, it wasn’t so bad. After about a 2 and a half hour drive and most of Captain America (movie) we made our way to Kochi. We were greeted by a welcome party of Kochi Rotarians and our host families. After lunch we made our way to the grocerty store to buy some foods that I enjoy. This was a short trip since I am intent on eating what the family eats, at any cost :).

When we arrived at my families home, I was pleasantly surprised that I would be staying in my own apartment above my host family’s. Don’t get me wrong, I like spending time with my host, though, I also enjoy having my own space. This was perfect. The host family spoke pretty good English as well.

After resting for a few hours, my host father, his daughter and grand daughter took me out to dinner to an italian restaurant. We ate so much “pizza” and pasta that we thought we might explode. We returned home and his daughter and grand daughter came up to my apartment and we talked for a while. It was really good to be able to talk to people who speak fluent English.
