So I'm here. I'm in Japan. Right now I'm in "the main lodge" with all the guys and some of the girls in the orientation week. Yesterday included nomihorai (all you can drink for two hours) in the local restaurant, american football (which apparently has rules, but I'm not sure what they are) and an Sentou (an indoor version of Onsen, which is a public heated bath, where nudity is a given). All of the above were awesome. I was of course brilliant at american football, a complete natural, winning and all that jazz... oh no wait, no that's a lie. Training is starting for real tomorrow, I've got to do some work before hand, but we're all chatting and hanging out. I don't feel like working. Here's a photo from last night.
