Bright Green Gaijin Pants, Posts 1 & 2

The bright green gaijin pants for which the blog was named

My first blog, titled Bright Green Gaijin Pants, was a chronicle of my time as an exchange student in Kushiro, Hokkaido, Japan. I’ve decided to repost its contents on this blog. For a full list of all these posts, check out the Bright Green Gaijin Pants category.

The first two posts are small and nothing special. Starting at post 3 is where things get really interesting.

Going, Going…

But not quite gone. I am in the San Fransisco airport right now (wishing I had some gatorade). On the first leg of my trip (to Seattle), I was seated next to a lady with an adorable 1.5 year old daughter. Talked to them when we weren’t sleeping. For the second leg, I had an exit seat (Yay! Leg room!) with plenty of room — it was an aisle seat, and there was a guy at the window but no on in between us. I just slept on that flight. I leave here for Tokyo at 11:10 AM Pacific time.

I had some trouble getting on my first plane — I missed boarding by (literally) about 30 seconds. Got transferred to an Alaska Air flight, but lukily for me, my baggage made it to the original plane, so there is no problem there.

Anyway, out of internet time. Talk to you from Japan! :D
