Today was slightly better than normal; I got to watch caligraphy (not particpate in, unfortunately, because I thik it`s something the residents pay for). I`m also getting to know some of the residents a little better, which is good. I can`t afford to update fully this time, but Jessica and I are joining up with the rest of the Cheshire volunteers and going to Osaka over Sunday and Monday for Christine`s (Harima home volunteer) birthday. We hope to go to Denden Town (Electric Town, I gather), which should be fun.
Here`s what you should write if you want to send me mail – the real kind (please do! – that includes you people I have emailed and know only online, you`re more than welcome to ^_^):
502-5 Ono Aza Hinayama
Telephone: 0790 75 2275
Fax: 0790 75 2606
Replace the first 0 with 0081 when calling/faxing from the U.K and remember the time difference – I`m 8 hours ahead, 9 when the clocks go back for you guys in the U.K. ButI`m not expecting calls at all really, because of the cost, so don`t worry if you can`t.
Sending letters should be no problem; it cost me something really cheap like 70-80 pence when sending a letter to my penfriend in Japan when I was in the U.K.
