Hokkaido here I come!
July 26th, 2008 is when I'll be flying out on my next adventure. This time it will be to Hokkaido, Japan with JET (The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme.)
A few days ago, I found out that I will be living in Sapporo - the 5th largest city in Japan! Sapporo is known for hosting the 1972 Olympics, the annual Yuki Matsuri (Sapporo Snow Festival) and of course, the Sapporo Brewery.
With a population of almost 2 million- I have a feeling this adventure will be quite different to my last adventure which was as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural village in Kenya, East Africa!!!
So now I'm preparing myself to trade my mud huts for neon lights... I can't wait!!!!!
