I got host family pictures today…

I got host family pictures today.  For the privacy of my family, I won’t be posting them online, but I will say they look quite…perfect.  I’ll probably post pictures of the family eventually when I, myself, have taken the pictures or am in the pictures.  (I have, however, posted the three pictures on facebook, but the albums are available to friends only) I will, however, crop one of the pictures and show a nice picture of Chouchou. More like Chubchub.  I think s/he’s rather cute. 

Kyoko & Chouchou

By the way, I learned this morning that the tags on my blog posts organize themselves alphabetically.  Before today, I was putting nifty little messages in the tags, and I realize now that the tags don’t make any sense and have really basic tags (i.e: The, a, I, etc.)

I finally (finally) got a host family today.

I have three host brothers, one of which is going to be an exchange student in the United States (I think. I couldn’t quite tell from the e-mail i got)

I’m going to be going to an all-boys school in Tokyo.

I’m going to be living in Kawasaki, between Tokyo and Yokohama.  Which is famous for it’s…festivals.  I’ll put it like that.  I’ll give you a hint and say the girls below aren’t riding a horse.

If you can figure out what the picture is, good for you. If you can’t, you should either think harder or just stop thinking about it all together.

EDIT: Image has been cropped due to a surprisingly high number of complaints (not from blog comments, from elsewhere).  Click on the image to see a gallery of images from last year’s event.  May not be work safe
