So yesterday i wasnt able to blog in the evening, i was so tired after spending 10 hours outside. I couldnt sleep in the night so after 3 hours of sleep my alarm clock rang, and i had to get up. I got some breakfast in the hotel and studyed for half an hour before i started my journey. My plan was to go to the zoo and afterwards shopping. And so i did, after 2 hours in the zoo i got on my way to shop, but finding out after half an hour that its not much more to see where i live so i googled "where to shop in tokyo" and got an adress. After finding the rigght station i took the underground to it, and finally after looking at some map and asking people i found it. Now the shopping began and i walked around for some hours. Then i wanted to go home, and it was harder then i thought. The trainstation was full, and with full i mean really full! I was standing for more than 15 minutes looking at my map when 4 girls came to me and asked me if i need help. Obviously i looked confused hehe.. So i said yes and they told me i look at the underground map and this is the train station, well that will not really work. After googling on their mobile phones, faster than any european could, they told me where to go, and 5 minutes later i was sitting in the right train, very happy! Well back in the hotel i skyped with my family and wrote a mail, then i studyed for abit and i was to tired to write. I was planning to go to disneyland this morning, but as you can see it didnt happen. I am so exhausted after the day yesterday so i will go tomorrow instead and chill out today Its many new things and experiences and its exchausting some times. So this morning i slept long, gonna study abit and then go shower and go out! Already looking forward to my daily ice cream So long - Maria
After waking up at 14.00 abit confused i went to take a quick shower, put on some clothes and went out. First i listened to some music on my mp3 player and i started walking. Here they have a train that hangs in the air, hard to explain, and it went by over me and all the kids in it waved at me, so well i waved back. Im like the only white person here. Today i have seen alot of people and maybe 2 other white people. So people stare, waves and look at my hair. So I saw these stairs which i thought id take a look at and when i got up it was a huge park with a lot of people. Here you could go into the zoo which i will do tomorrow and also walk around looking at artists drawing people, awesome trees etc. Then i saw an artist balancing things and i sat down under a tree and watched him for a bit. It was so amazing looking at the small children, all with big eyes, sitting still for almost 30 Minutes just watching him. The children here are so polite! Most europeans can learn from them! So after the show i walked to the train station which was in the center where i was yesterday. I went to a cafe, bought what i thought was a drink but was ice cream, but it tasted so good so i think i have to go back there! I sat down for some moments, then after eating i had to go to the toilet. Im not gonna go in details here but the public toilets all have seat-heating and automatically shower for -you-know-what. Pretty funny! So then i had to find a adapter for my computer so i could use it today, and today i brought the cable and it was a lot easier that way, i got it in about 5 minutes Then i walked around the rest of the day for about 5 hours shopping. Its funny because yesterday i thought they were selling umbrellas everywhere because it rains, but today i saw that they were using umbrellas for the sun aswell, so it all makes sense now. I even got myself a snoopy-umbrella. You know, i love snoopy! Buying some gifts today for my mom, my boyfriend and even a cute little thing for my brother-in-law who is 1 year old! They have a lot of funny things here, and so much i would have brought home if it wasnt to heavy, like stuff for the appartment. Well i used alot of money today, but i also got a lot of nice stuff and didnt spend more than i had for todays budget so Things i learned today: -The italians and even the austrian are better in making pizza than the japanese -The people are exrtemly polite, like 1000 times more than in austria, which i didnt think was possible. -Its mummi, snoopy, hello kitty EVERYWHERE -Fridays are obviously a day to shop, not thursdays, the streets were full! -Its actually possible to find a shop with clothes for people with normal sizes (which might be a special shop for japanese, who knows), which means i got new tshirts, pyjamas and even 2 dresses! So well back in the hotel i have webcammed with my boyfriend for almost two hours, then i studyed for a while and now wrote this blog. I think there is soon time to go to sleep, even tho ive only been awake for 9 hour. Tomorrow im gonna go get a shave-ice.. :D So long - Maria PS: its not possible to get a space in between, i tried everything, so im sorry its a wall of text!
