Wednesday Afternoon/Evening


After lunch we headed back to the base. We wanted to tell our TLF neighbors of another home they may be interested in. I wanted to call Connie and ask which DOCOMO plan she had...but couldn't reach her.


Back at DOCOMO I ran into some friends. The HUSBAND was with her and he had been given a remote phone with an English customer service agent on the other end to carry around the store and get questions answered. I now know what I need. BUT I couldn't get it because I didn't have a land line or home address. Mike said we'll go back together on Friday. The plans are totally different here.....


I decided we needed to go to the "train" park which is really called "Chuo park". I looked that up in the dictionary. I thought it would mean train - but it says it means "center" or something.... This park has a zip line, fun climbing structures and other kids to play with. We had fun.

This encounter brought home WHY we want to learn Japanese. We want to be able to make the best use of these visits with our hosts. I'd also like to figure out why the lady in the corner of the park had her cat dressed like a baby and was patting it and burping it.....

We came home, made dinner, the older two raced to an AWANA leader meeting, we're not sure how involved will get with AWANAS....Mike is still working....I'm using valued Internet time....

DOCOMO? That's not on your list in the sidebar. Or is it a Japanese word?

DOCOMO is a Japanese cell phone company. I haven't a clue if it stands for anything and I hope that it is not often used in blog posts. LOL I am really hoping to have cell phones that work that don't cause frustration. LOL

Wow! What a blessing cell phones and the likes would have been. Still remember the 1st time I was able to email to the States...... then Phone even......... WOW!

Jawo can call from China for 2 cents a minute via skype with his telephone. Not bad. Have talked to him once.

Oh, Mom, we are NOT getting international texting or minutes on our cell phone....far too expensive. When we are settled we'll have skype.
