The Eagle Has Landed

Aomori City is amazing. These last few days have been amazing. Everything went perfectly to plan and I'm settling in to my new life here. I'm currently sat in a manga cafe about a 20-minute walk from my apartment. The screen here is bigger than my apartment, and I'm just sending out some messages to family and friends to let everyone know how it's all going. Here's a bit of a teaser of what I got up to in the last week: arrived in Tokyo, stayed at a sweet hotel in Shinjuku, met tons of other JETs from all over the world (including Joe from Joe In Japan), ate french fries for breakfast, showed some karaoke virgins how to party, went to various eating/drinking establishments including Mister Donut and a Hub, took a plane to Aomori, arrived at work, ate Pizza Hut at a work party, settled into my new apartment, had an article written about me in the local paper, experienced Aomori's hottest day in 11 years, took part in the Nebuta Festival... Needless to say, it's been an action packed week, but I've enjoyed every minute. Even the parts where I've nearly falled asleep at my desk 'cos of jet lag.

I want to get myself a camera ASAP so I can take pictures of everything here, and I need to get internet and a laptop sorted, but I have to wait for things like my alien registration and my wages to come through. Expect some cool updates soon though.

Mate, I tried to visit your blog from work but it said it was blocked for adult/pornographic content.
