Comfort Zones

Monday the 16th was our last day in Japan, and we spent it traveling: buses, trains, planes, (and lots of walking).  At Narita Airport, we had lunch (cuurrrry) and made one last Lawson's run.  I am going to miss that conbini :\ Me and nicole made last-minute origami at a Japanese culture booth before sprinting like mad to our terminal (when I say last minute, I really mean last minute haha).  Before long, we were taking off, leaving behind Japan, and returning to our comfort zones :)  Mr. Mitchell was right;  venturing outside our comfort zones was kind of terrifying and well, uncomfortable.  Mustering up the courage to speak Japanese to strangers, staying by myself in a temple, and eating loads of crap when I didn't even know what it was (it was tongue): All of these were scary, but at the same time rewarding beyond words.  Being in a country like Japan and getting immersed in so much unfamiliar culture was really an unforgettable experience. I met such an amazing family, and when I go back (study abroad please?) I definitely plan on seeing them again. Until then, またね日本!:)
