100th blog!

How fun...my 100th blog! I apparently ramble on more than Adrienne :) or I
m just an excessive blogger - but it's been such a good way to share all my goings on in Japan and there always seems to be something new and different! Part me can't believe I've only been here 7 months and part of me thinks the time has flown - it's been a roller coaster for sure, but a learning experience and one I wouldn't change for the world (ok I might have chosen a different country in retrospect ha ha) but overall such a good experience for me! Thanks to all of you that have shared every word and picture of it with me so far. I appreciate your comments, emails, packages, skype messages...love and miss you all! Anyway - here's my top 10 likes and dislikes in Japan...no particular order!

10 things I love about Japan

1. My Japanmate
2. Tour Book Days
3. Reading at Starbucks
4. Neighborhood Church
5. The sea wall
6. Italian dressing (can’t read anything else on the label though!)
7. Pineapple Park
8. The ocean
9. Ryukyu glass
10. The Japan diet

10 things I hate about Japan
1. Milk
2. Sour cream...it's just wrong that it looks like cream cheese
3. Thomas the car...overheating at a stop light and changing out of gears when it's an automatic is just wrong
4. the wood box AKA our apartment
5. clothing sizes and styles
6. humidity
7. Labels I can’t read
8. 17 hour time difference
9. rain
10. eating lunch with my students

Back to regular programing...still haven't finished my blog from the week - but I'll get caught up soon!

100th blog, you are blogging very well. I am impressed. I don't think I have 100 blogs and I have been blogging longer. I should count.
