Getting closer...

The day draws nearer and nearer when I will leave Murakami!
Sometimes when I think about this I get sad, especially when I think about saying goodbye to the people that were so kind to me here. Other times, like when I check the weather and see nothing but rain for the next TEN DAYS, I can't wait to get out of here. Also, lately every Japanese person that's pestered me on the street, on top of a mountain, during dinner, etc, has without fail called me fat. I think my favorite such instance was a portly drunken man shoveling food down his throat, reaching over, pinching my arm, and calling me fat. Almost as good as that time I had just run up a mountain (yes, RUN), and another sagging old man told me all Americans were unhealthy and fat, then asked me if I had trouble finding clothes in Japan since I was so much bigger than all the women here. Pooheads! I'm out of here!

Well... sometimes I'll say something like, 'ah, but I've seen people who have eaten too much fried chicken.' but mostly I just try to be polite. That's part of my job...
