Kinpouzan Trip Part 4: Week 2 Udon Soba Shop

Yay! I love big crowds these days!
This crowd in particular is different from the others I hang out with
First of all, I met this guys not because they wanted to learn a foreign language (most other acquaintances I make start out from that intention)
So basically I get to listen to and speak a lot of Japanese
and we just hang out, the bunch of us!

Free oranges!

Maple leaves! They're really pretty, aren't they?

Same path from the week before, but with more people :D

This time I tried another type of dango

These guys are really tight cuz they've been having classes together for quite some time now. If I'm not mistaken, the 13 of them hang out quite a lot. They're graduating in April, so they're all busy looking for jobs (in Japan, they start looking for jobs during their junior year and pretty much have a job by the time they graduate) and studying for their certificate test (January 25 and 26... you go, guys!) After that, they might go out together on a trip or something and I hope I can tag along, LOL

Do you know the song "How you going to keep them down on the farm now that they've see Paree"?

At the end of the first World War, American soldiers who had gone from their simple lives in mostly small rural areas in the U.S. to the violence of war and to exciting cities like London and Paris during their time away from the fighting found it difficult to return to their routine lives "on the farm" or in their small hometowns. The song "How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm?" is about that dilemma.

My point in referencing it is that you may find it similarly difficult to return to the routines of your life in Taipei after your many adventures in Japan. What do you think?
