Looks like Karl finished his English teacher training in Tokyo and now gets to travel to his town. I remember feeling SO scared when leaving Tokyo because I was given no pictures of my town or my apartment I was moving into. It was such a safe feeling being around other English teachers while in Tokyo and then they split us up and send us on our way! Good luck foreigners! Never before or since then have I ever moved to a place that I've never even seen before! While riding the bullet train for the first time, on the way to my town, one of the guides told me we would be passing through my town so keep a look out. It went by so fast and didn't look like anything special so I got even more scared! And a little sick to my stomach. It was a true "What am I doing here?" moment!
