So I've been skipping on blog posts because I want some new things to talk about when I get home. So I'll just post a few pics and a few things int his entry. I probably won't write again until I get home. Ok?
So we went to the Aizu Candle Festival and I took some pictures of the pretty lanterns that all the high school kids in Aizu made for the festival. It was really dark, so the pictures aren't too fantastic, but it was really pretty. We went with some of the Japanese staff and it was really cute, Maki-san was herding Ash and I around like a mother hen.
Good times. :3
In other news, Valentines Day came and went here. It's done differently in Japan though. On Valentines Day, girls give chocolate to their friends, and the boys that they like. One month later, March 14th is called White Day and on that day the boys give chocolate back to the girls they like. I made some chocolate and gave it out, I don't know if I'll get any back though. When a boy gives you chocolate, traditionally it means he LIKES you, like, wants to date you. So I dunno if I'll get any back.
Valentines chocolate over here is really beautiful though. Ash got me some and I bought some for myself! I forgot to take pics of the chocolate Ash got me, but this is the one I bought for myself.
