Wow. I live in France now. This place is crazy. Not crazy like "OMG this is cah-rayyy-zayyy", but crazy like EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT. I don't know why this took me aback so. I mean, I was more than prepared to deal with culture shock, and of course, I understood I would. But this week has been intense. I have created a list of all the differences (some, opposites) between my home country/state (the US/Ohio) and my host country.
This Tuesday, I had a great encounter with the traditional and typical Japanese life style. Nice Taste! --Yokohama Ramen

We were finally leaving! Everything was packed, and we left for the airport around 8:00 am. Our first flight was from Columbus to Chicago. Due to the time zones we were leaving at 11:01 am and arriving at 11:16 am. Not everyone had chosen the faculty flight, but a majority of the students did and we were able to meet up while waiting for our plane. Once we arrived in Chicago we got food. I was wearing a drawstring bag with the OSU logo on it and got an OH-IO from a stranger within the first ten minutes. The first one of the trip!
