Japan - Day 5 -
I seriously think they hand picked a good friend for me when they chose my home stay family. Mai is so awesome. I wish we lived closer together so we could hang out more. After spending some one in downtown Osaka last night, we were able to sleep in a little for our eventful day. We started off with a nice walk through her neighborhood before catching the train downtown Nara. We went to the rooftop of the city offices (which is usually closed to the public except for today) where we had an amazing view of Nara followed by brunch at the street vendors out front. We went to the 1st half of a Noh performance then we went to her student's musical. Both really well put together shows, too bad neither permitted photos. Then we wandered through the shops, saw some pagodas and temples. We snacked at a cafe and then met back at the hotel. I went to dinner with some of the program members and we visited an arcade ( I don't known hat they are called here, but the upper floors were like gambling halls) ...lots of food, new friend, many lasting memories.
