Day 11 – June 13, 2012

13 Jun

Today, Kayla and I woke up late, missed breakfast and our bus to our museum.  Whoops!!  So we decided to make today still a productive day and explored the city.  First, we went to go get breakfast from a local bakery; it was delicious!!  After, we got the address to Harley Davidson and began what seemed to be the longest walk of our lives.  Along the way, we found a Fire Station that my father wanted a photo of, but instead we not only got a picture of their truck, but also got a picture with their whole department, tried on their gear, and obtained an official “Tokyo Fire Dept.” hat.  We conversed with the Fire Chief and other firefighters and then continued our journey to Harley Davidson to get t-shirts for Kayla’s family.  As we were walking, we kept thinking that we were lost because we had not arrived to our destination yet.  As we continued our walk, we asked several different people if we were close and they kept saying, “Yes. A little bit more up the street.”  When we finally arrived to Harley Davidson we realized how far we were by the city we were in: Chofu – we walked 12 miles!!  One way!!  After we got our t-shirts, we headed back for the hotel on a 12 mile walk home.  When we got back to the hotel, we ate a late lunch and decided that a nap was well deserved.  When we got up from our nap, we went and got dinner in Fuchu, a city nearby.

      Thanks Dr. Bahr!! I definitely am having the time of my life. It makes me very sad and I feel bittersweet that today is my last day with all of these amazing students who have taught me so much about myself. See you when I return!!
