Goodnight, Machida

Well, it was a busy last day here in Machida. 
Hey! It's not your turn yet, beach!

Anyway. Today was bag pickup day, so lots of cleaning happened while I waited. Lots of loafing too, but don't tell anyone. 

My bags finally left, and I flew out the door to my dental appointment. They put me in the Snow White room, so I had a little entertainment while people were poking around at my teeth. 

Today was also my day to transfer my yen to dollars, thanks to a delightful snarl of problems. The exchange rate wasn't as bad as the last time, so that was nice. Unfortunately, I got a little overzealous with the transferring, so I may be a little broke when I come back. Oh, well!

Came home for some more cleaning and ran into my neighbor Sharon. She's a lot of fun and I'm going to miss her. I'll miss lots of people. But I won't miss the commuter trains. I NEED A BREAK FROM THOSE THINGS!

Around 3, I asked myself why I was home and not at the beach. I didn't have a good answer, so I headed off for the sunset. It was beautiful. Fuji was wearing a big clou hat, but it was still lovely and I was glad I went. 

On the way home, I tried the new McDonald's French fries with chocolate sauce. They were terrible.  

I got home and took a box of living stuff to the shipping company. One of the few times I wished for a car!
Now I'm up in my loft ready for my last sleep this term. 

See you in a few hours, America!

That was such a memorable visit, Liz. I truly loved riding back and forth to work with you for 5 weeks. So sorry I couldn't provide the commuter train experience--you had to make do with the one train crossing in Pelahatchie!
