It's a good thing I'm familiar with blogger, because these computers are set with Japanese characters... ::snort::
Keep the questions coming and I'll use them as a basis for blog posts. We are trying to make time to go to a wifi spot to upload some photos to Photobucket and then we can add them and blog from these computers.
Beach - Misawa has a BEACH - nice lake and a sandy beach...with cabins. I can't wait for a bit nicer weather to go out and explore.
Driving - We have to have both a valid American license and a military issue license to drive in Japan....and believe me...when you can't READ the signs, you do appreciate the crash driving course the base requires. It's quite funny to get used to the left side being the passenger side too. ::snort::
TLF - Temporary Living Facility....we are currently in the TLF. They gave us adjoining units. Each unit has a bedroom, a living room/kitchen and a bathroom. Each living room has a couch and chair that make into beds. They are built very solidly. This gives me hope that our neighbors may not strangle us when if we are assigned to apartments. LOL We'll be in the TLF until we are assigned a home. It is looking promising that we'll be given two units....not sure two units of WHAT? Mike asked for two units in a 4plex...making that 4 plex a duplex. I think this is a GREAT solution for large families and one they should plan on permanently now that they require us to live on base..... Surely, other large families would come along and take the other sides.....BUT what they've done in the past is give two apartments....so either way will work. They will either give us that exception or I would expect an exception to live off base. I'm disappointed not to live off base...but there are advantages to living on base as well.
Gotta go....Stacia is DONE with computer time.
