What’s up people. So I finally arrived in Okinawa, bought a new adapter cause my other one died on me, arrived at my dormitory and have access to a decent internet connection.
So let’s start from the beginning: The flight was a pain in the ass – though I was surprised that they showed “Ashita no Joe”. Awesome movie with a deep meaning hidden inside of it. If you live in Japan – go borrowed it! – if not just download it online //laughs
Anywho after endless suffering because of carrying two suitcases and one laptop bag for two hours in the freaking summer heat (35°C), getting of the wrong train station, walking around in circles I made it more or less alive to my Hostel called “Cam Cam”.
It’s tiny and I almost passed by without noticing it. It’s really cute and filled with kind people though.
Dang i missed japanese fashion style, their randomness and the sitting pose lol
Exchanged email addresses with a lot of them and jumped under the shower. However, the moment you exit the bathroom you feel like going right back.
Then I messaged my dear Soulmate Brandon who picked me up an hour later with his car to show Naha to me.
…my new partner in crime!
Blue sky, palm trees, sunny beaches & awesome food. This place is worthy to be called paradise! Brandon introduced me to his friends and we had some Starbucks. Dang, how much did I miss the delicious Matcha Frappucino! ❤ Thanks for inviting me Brandon =)
Yea – that’s how we roll 😉 Loving his car and I realized how much I missed going on random rides! Driving through the city without a real aim, taking pictures, shit chatting and just hanging out with fun people.
Night time in Okinawa – taken from a nice little apartment up the hill ;P
Around ten I made it back to the Hostel and talked to the japanese people there. They were playing the guitar, singing, smoking (lol), playing video games and one girl sewed a case for her cell phone ALL NIGHT!
Didnt stay up too late – maybe eleven o’clock and headed to bed….to wake up at freaking 4 AM! – just in time for the final soccer match. USA vs Japan. Good job, my dear japanese kick ass girls you really surprised everyone by winning the World Cup! OMEDETO!
Moving on, Okinawa is very different from usual japanese cities. There is a lot of American influence and yet they treasure old traditions. I just met all of my team & roommates and hell yea one is Australian. Digging the accent! Shout out to my lovely girl Lu :*
The other guys are all funky and from all over the world. Now that we arrived in Nago I can’t express in words how much i miss Naha already…Nago is a ghost village…
I’ll be start working on Wednesday in the restaurant and as much as I’m looking forward to speak more japanese as scared am I to screw up /laughs
Probably going to buy a prepaid phone from Softbank after all to keep in contact with my Naha peeps.
So, we are going out to the beach soon so I’ll post another blog tomorrow after my job orientation. Like the pictures? 😉
