Happy Late New Year!

Me and my ikebana
Sorry for not updating in a while! I've been busy and lazy.
I need to update my vlog too. I've taken a lot of video footage, but haven't put it together yet >_<

I did some flower arrangement, ikebana, for the New Year.

For New Years we went to my host father's mother's home in Hyuga in northern Miyazaki.

We watched Kohaku Uta Gassen, went to a shrine on New Years day, and ate o-sechi ryori. I am not very fond of o-sechi. The only parts of it I ate were the egg, the fish cakes (same kind you find in udon), and the soybeans. Oh and the mochi in miso soup, o-zouni. I trieed it, nut do not care much for Kazunoko or sardines.

Kohaku Uta Gassen is a big music show on NHK that airs every New Years Eve. They have many popular artists on the show, half is music like J-Pop, the other half is enka.

I met one of my host sisters for the first time last weekend, and this week, my other host sister is coming back from her year long exchange in Brazil.

Today I met with Girl Scouts in Japan with 2 other exchangers, and we went to eat udon, to Miyazaki Shrine, the Prefectural Museum, and to eat majuu. It was a lot of fun!

I can't believe it's almost time to leave here... I only have  3 weeks left. A part of me wants to go home, but the other part of me wants to stay. Talking to other exchangers, it seems many of us feel this way.
I'm going to be sad to say goodbye to everyone here ;__;

I have bought a crapton of gifts. They fill like half my suitcase.

Bye bye for now~
