my first gift from a teacher

I had my first day at my other high school today... Everyone is sooooooooo nice. I can't get over how nice everybody is here in Japan. So welcoming and accommodating and helpful...

While I was sitting in the corner waiting to introduce myself during the morning teacher meeting - one of the teachers from another department came up to me and handed me this gift!!!! soooooo sweet. he first asked me which transportation i come school to. then handed me this!!!!!!

its taco.... and no no no... not the mouth watering latin dish i miss so much (im talkin about you mighty taco and el famous!) but here in japan taco means octopus.

soooooo.... i received dried octopus cakes! a specialty from osaka. mmmmmmm..................
