LIfe in Japan

Sorry that I haven't written anything in while, but it has been about a week since I arrived in Japan and I am still adjusting to the atmosphere here. First of all, it's really hot during the day! I mean, man! In Bulgaria it was so cold, that I thought that winter is coming and here is like in the middle of the summer. It's great that I have an air conditioner in my room. Otherwise I wouldn't have survived until now :D
Ever since I arrived at the airport everything has been new and so interesting to me! It's so much different from Bulgaria. Right now I am in Minoo, where I will be studying, which means that I am not in the big city. The Minoo campus of the Osaka university is a really great place, the only problem is that I have to walk about 15 minutes up the hill to get there. I usually don't mind walking, but it's really tiring, when it's hot and I get really sweaty and I don't feel really good about it.
The past week has been all about dealing with documents and getting orientations about the university life, the subjects and the program itself. We had a placement test and I have to say, I did quite well and this means that I can choose to study the subjects I like. So basically, this week was a rush. I had to go and register my address, I had to open a bank account, I had to buy a lot of things for my room (and now I have a money problem XD), I had to write a bunch of essays and complete some questioners, to go through a placement test and an interview and so on. Now you see why I haven't written anything up until now.
Actually I haven't moved much around the town. I have walked around to learn the surroundings like shops and so on, but I still haven't been to Osaka. I plan to go there on Sunday with the other Bulgarians, though. Everything here is so new and amazing that I really don't have to go much far to be astonished.
