This week was a blast! On preparation day, we went to Kyoto and experience for ourselves the Japanese culture. I met with a couple of people and made friends with them! We went to temples, the monkey mountain, the bamboo forest, and etc. We also met with a funny lady who got mad at us for asking discount claiming that they don’t have it in Japan. She also said that we were impolite for asking it not knowing that we always got discounts. After our trip to Kyoto, we went to the Elder’s apartment in Osaka and stayed there for the night. While in the apartment, we talked, ate, and played games until 10:30 pm and then retired to bed. We went to Kobe the next morning.
The following day, we had district meeting and I got lost at the train station. I wasn’t scared since I’m already familiar with the place and I found them shortly anyways. We also had dinner with a family and ate a lot of meat. At first, we thought that it was her treat but then she told us that we’ll pay separately which made me nervous since we’re at an expensive restaurant. But on the flip side, I got to know them well and got a chance to say jokes and laugh with them. They have a very wonderful family!
