Host Family!!

After 2 days of orientation provided kindly by the program, I finally arrived at my host family's house! The orientation was very fun while being extremely helpful. It teaches the students how to survive in Japan including how to ride a train and how to buy food! I got to know a lot of new people from around the world such as Finland, Australia, America, France, etc. This is such a great way to meet people, I'm glad I came! 
My host family is the Nagashima family from Kanagawa Prefecture. They are so kind I even got surprised! My host mom is a very youthful and energetic person with a great sense of humor. My host dad is funny and very friendly even though he's very busy everyday. Last but not least, my little host brother, he's the cutest kid I've met in Japan! He looks like a half child since he has light brown hair and big eyes. He's very energetic and has a great personality, I'm sure he's going to be really popular when he gets older. This family is just... So cool and awesome! They're way more than I can ask for. I feel like I'm going to have a lot of fun with them. Their house is very pretty and clean too! The grandma who lives across the street is very kind and friendly too, always giving us vegetable from her garden. This is so helpful for Japanese people because fruit and vegetable are very very expensive in Japan! 

We ate sukiyaki today and had our own little Hanabi festival (firework)! It was very fun.
