We were sent our Japanese address today. I’m not sure why but that’s really got the adrenalin flowing! Suddenly the whole adventure seems even more real, more imminent, than it did before.
When our oldest son, Matthew, who taught in Japan for two years, received our new address, he looked it up on Google maps and sent us the following message. “I’m excited to tell you that you’ll be close to Costco! It was such a lifesaver for us…affordable cereal, bagels, pancake mix and syrup, coffee, etc, etc. Having some very familiar western food was such a comfort…I’m glad to see you’ll have that too!”
We love Japanese food and I’m looking forward to the challenge of shopping in a foreign environment and learning to cook the unfamiliar but it’s also nice to know that we’ll have access to some of the more familiar foods, especially for breakfasts.
