Travelogue, 27 August 2005 I'm in Atlanta now, staying at a youth hostel. It's pretty neat meeting other women from all over the world, Greece, Ireland, Australia. I'm considering it a good preparation for the Miyagawa School. I've been spending some time at the library looking up information on the school, Osaka, and writing down simple Japanese phrases out of books. I'm leaving for the west coast in a few days. I don't like being in a city this big. It's strange, my money is running out. I am never at a loss of food when in practically any forrest in america, but finding meals alone in the city is a burden. Japan will be a big transition. I'm trying not to worry.
