Three more days to go, and then I’m flying back home. Let me tell you some things I didn’t say before.
Firstly, I’ve bought so many souvenirs that I was afraid that I would have to buy a second suitcase (and pay a lot of money for taking a second suitcase onto the plane) or throw away as many things as I can: Contact lens fluids, soap, pens, paper, maybe even the book I brought for the exam I had to do here. I even considered tossing out my toothbrush, deodorant and the two towels I brought, if it means that I would up with one suitcase that weighs less than 20kg. However, after weighing my suitcase, I’m still well under the limit. Whew.
Let me tell you what I’m going to miss about Japanese culture and what things from this culture I’m more than happy to leave behind. Let’s start with the latter.
