Hey everyone this week has been crazy! This week I have been talking to a ton of people in the frigid snow fall. Everyone here is super nice. Right now is the big test season for just about anyone who is in school. College tests are crazy, high school tests are crazy, but the most crazy tests are the high school entrance exams. They are freaking crazy, right now all 3rd year middle school students have no life because they spend all day every day just non-stop studying. Even though all that kind of crazy stuff is going on we are still seeing miracles! The biggest miracle this week was this last Saturday.
It was a really cold day, the snow fall was terrible and no one, I mean no one was outside or wanted to stop and talk because of the cold. We tried everything we could and right at the point where it was close to dinner and we were feeling a little bit down we decided to try to get one more contact. We decided to talk to these two guys who were outside the train station. They looked a little lost so we asked if we could help them. It turns out they came from Asahikawa and were looking for a place to eat. They had come down to do some mixed martial arts training for the army. In the end we went with them and ate Ramen with them and taught them a lesson. It went really well and all kept saying it was a miracle that we had met. Though the funniest part is here we are two Americans who barely moved here to Hokkaido and two Japanese guys who have lived in Hokkaido their whole lives and its the Americans that were showing them around. Certainly something I never thought would happen!
Any way I hope you all have had an amazing week!
