It's my third day in S.F.

It's too cold for me now, in San Francisco.
When I left my apartment in Japan, it was hot like summer so I brought clothes for summer mainly. But now, I'm freezing. Some people wear thick coats (But sometimes I saw some people wear only short sleeves shirts. Amazing!).

Today is the third day in S.F. for us. We are still troubled with the jet lag. But we walked ten thousand steps a day. We are really interested in this town of hills.

We went an italian breakfast cafe, "Mama's cafe" today. We should have got in line for about an hour. But the food tastes wonderful! And people who worked there were all good guys.
One of them was eating a green chili, and he said to me to eat it. I answered yes and I ate a little bite. It was ... hooooot !!!!! My mouth was burned! I drank a lot of water. It was awful... But they laughed and I enjoyed it. I like to joke with other people.

And then, we went to Fisherman's warf. I wanted to see sea lions there, and I could see them. Such a lot! They laid overlapped each other. It was most interesting sight there for me.

Next monday, our english course in city college of San Francisco begin. I should learn English more, and I want to talk with others.

Happy that you have arrived in the US! It sounds like you are having a wonderful time despite the jetlag and it will be even more fun after the jetlag is done. How nice that you will be taking an English course! Your English is already wonderful though!

Hope for warmer weather for you! Enjoy yourself!

We took about 9 hours flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. I drank too much in the air,,, ha ha ha!
Today is the first day! It might be a lot of people in our English courses. I'm so exciting!

Hi Eydie,
Is it Wisconshin type? It's really delicious! I'm looking forward to being there and eating breakfast.
I like San Francisco very much but I want to see the other cities in the country.
Thank you!

Hi Ravenhill,
I can't listen and speak English well.
The day before yesterday, I had to make a call and it was really hard. I don't want to try it more... So I watch TV everyday though I cannot understand well...
But you everyone are teaching me English. Thanks a lot!

I'm going to be in San Francisco on the 19th for a wedding. I can't wait. I love it there! I live in Albuquerque, NM, where they put green chili on everything!

mairuru said...

Hi Clare, Yes, they are really funny!

Hi Alexa,
Oh! Is it a wedding of your friend? Congratulations!
I don't know if we can go to N.M, but I'm interested in White Sands, and now, I want to eat some foods with green chilis!!!!
