Hello Sapporo

This is the view from my front door -- you can see the Bell of Espoire at the top of the hill in the distance.

Just a quick note before I head off to Sapporo for a week of training. Good to know that after a total of 4 days (two in Tokyo and two in Sapporo) of training, I'm considered qualified to teach kids from nursery school to high school. I think there are three days of Japanese language training too. Maybe I'll be fluent after that! Right.... Maybe I need to go drink my coffee and finish packing before my supervisor gets here.

That's right. My supervisor is taking me to Sapporo to make sure I get there alright. I get to make my own way back. But they've already gone and bought me a train ticket for Friday. Too bad, I would have liked to hang out in Sapporo for the weekend.

Sounds like fun to be headed to the big city for a few days. I am sure they just want to be sure you don't get lost and are being protective.

Hope to hear lots about Sapporo when you get back. Too bad about coming back on Friday instead of having the weekend to explore, but it could be fun to explore later when you are a little more confident in your Japanese etc. Have fun : )
