Second and third week In Japan
Our host had decided to change our scheduling from 5 half days of work to three full days with an hour break for lunch, this makes it so we have more days off and can go explore a little bit more.
I have to say filling the whole day teaching young children is very tiring. They have so much energy thats sometimes it's hard to keep up with them. But, after the kids have lunch we try and let them have a nap, most of the kids don't want to take a nap when you ask. So I thought I should try something my mom tought me, which is; rol them in their blankets really tight and cosy so they can't squirm as much. This worked with great effect and now I can usually get all the kids to take a nap after lunch.
Of course we also did other stuff last week, we stumbled upon one off the best burger places I have ever seen, the burgers are so big that after one of them you want to go to sleep. Also we went out last saturday with two japanese friends we met at work, they showed us around the nightlife area and took us to several bars and even one nightclub. (I have to say; they always say white people can't dance, but then you haven't seen a japanese person dance yet.)
Oh, I almost forgot that we also went to a somewhat smaller town called Otaru, It is a port-town with a lot of good Sushi places (Of which we had some(See picture)) and a beer brewery. I am also surprised to say that the beer here in Japan is incredibly tasty and doesn't give you a hangover (mostly).
Well thats it for this entry I guess, I will post another blog next week.

The kids look very cute, your friend very handsome, the sushi delicious, the beer great, but the hamburger you praise into heaven is indeed enormous, but seems to consist for 50% of lettuce.
Keep having a great time! I am still jealous.

Great to see you are enjoying working with the children so much, although it must be quite exhausting too. Great to read that your mother's startegy worked on getting these children take their naps too. I love the picture of you and the children. The other day I watched a documentary (3 op reis, I think) about Japan and I learned about an interesting feature: nominication. Have you found out or even experienced this yet? You can watch it here: http://www.npo.nl/3-op-reis/06-03-2016/BNN_101378216.
Enoy the rest of your adventures in Japan!
Kind regards, Elona

Hi Collin, getting kids to sleep (thanks to your mum! - I've got 4 children myself so I know all about it), eating huge burgers, drinking non-hangover Japanese beer and eating sushi which probably can't be avoided in Japan.....is there more to be desired on a free-mover stay in the Far East? Enjoy and take care (which is in Japanese....?) , Jan
