A picture from last February came on my screensaver a minute ago, and it reminded me of a thought I had that day that I had forgotten about until now.

This was the day my roommate and I were driving to Nashville for my interview for the JET Programme. We took the, ahem, scenic route and som
ehow managed to turn a 6 hour drive in
to a 10 hour expedition. As we drove, I remember thinking that if I got into this program, I would never be able to take long scenic trips like this. After all, Japan has a third of the population of the United States in an area about the size of California. I was a little sad, because I love long trips through naturally beautiful areas.
