|Tokyo, November 2011. |
Still loving Photo Booth.
I remember exactly how I felt on my way to the airport, saying goodbye to Montreal, knowing it would be a while before I'd come back. A bit terrified, a bit relieved, mostly excited. I remember my last meal in a Mile End diner, a cold, snowy night, difficult good byes, a mini freak out at the airport.
I also remember my first night in Nagoya, stocking up on Pocky and Lemon CC, exploring the local conbini, taking pictures of the washing machine, accidentally getting drunk with the people who would become my closest friends.
How things have changed- I came here a bit shy, a bit princess-y, a bit high-maintenance perhaps. A year in the rice fields of isolated Shikoku island and a lonely stint in Osaka really made me so independent (if only slightly quirky).
To be fair, it has been a complete riot, and I have been having so much fun. I still love love love Japan, and I'm lucky to be here, living in Tokyo, with some of my best friends.
Happy Japanniversary xo
