The Real Thing

I've settled into my host family's house. The first night they invited their son and daughter who live in Kyoto to come and welcome me. We had a giant meal with Takoyaki and sushi. I was stuffed! My family is very nice and I'm getting lots of practice speaking Japanese every day. We took a more formal picture, but I think this one more accurately depicts my family. I feel like I'm going get the real Japanese experience living with them. My host sister's husband is interested in cameras so we had a good chat about them, in Japanese would you believe! Classes are starting now so I probably won't have as much free time, but I think it will be a pretty awesome semester.
