Still no access at home :(

Hello All,

Thank you to everyone who has been reading my posts.

I haven't been able to update in a while, so I'm sorry. Basically I'm now situated at my base school - Taisha Jr. High - where I hang out in the teacher's room everyday until I have classes. They only have one internet computer in the teacher's room that about 20 teachers share, so my access is limited for now.

I finally got my supervisor to arrange for me to get internet access at home - I should receive the modem, etc this week and hopefully be up and running from my little apartment by next weekend. Then I should be able to update this site regularly.

Still trying to get a scooter, which will be my next larger purchase, so a digital camera will have to wait until at least the middle of October.

Despite typhoon conditions and a double earthquake, I'm doing fine and settling in OK. I'm craving some good Mexican food and a night out at the movies, but other than some small distractions, I'm making the most of my time here and enjoying everyday.

Hope all is well where you are.

-Jason

Hi... Surfed in from the blogger search bar thing. I've got a buddy of mine who's in the Navy and is stationed over near Tokyo.

Later,

Yeah, that typhoon was more severe than I expected, and I imagine you guys on the coast got the full force of it.
Double earthquake? I thought I felt a small tremor, a day or two before the typhoon, but I couldn't tell if it was my imagination. By the time I fetched a glass of water, whatever might have been happening was no longer maybe happening.

Glad to hear you'll soon be wired. Good luck with the scooter.
