Challenge!

I am trying to type this message on a Japanese keyboard on the campus of Seibold University. I am fairly computer literate but the keyboard posed a challenge!

We visited the atomic bomb museum today. Dad would love that place! It was very sad, but exteremly interesting.

Then we had lunch at a Japanese department store and did some shopping. I thought of Jena...some of the stores had things in that I could see you loving! Then I thought of Jocelyn. Purses everywhere! I have seen a lot of LV purses...lots and lots and lots.

Now we are at Seibold University. We went to a tea ceremony where the guy video taping (Japanese student) was taping me because I made the mistake of saying the camera made me nervous!!! It was really neat though.

Seibold university has only four departments, one of which is nursing. We got to see where they teach the pre-natal and infant care sections. Very neat. I took pictures for my nursing friends!!!! We also got to meet with students. Very cool. I will post some pics when I am at my PC!

Talk to you all soon!!!

ps - no spell check!!! I can not figure it out!

I remember having the hardest time in Central America trying to find the "@" key so I could send an email.... oh Culture shock!

That is neat you got to see the Nursing School, it is after all one of the best occupations ever!

Greetings from the other "Melissa in Japan". By the way, where are you in Japan? I couldn't tell from reading your blog. There are atomic bomb museums in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The Japanese keyboard's not that bad once you get used to it. @ is in the upper right. ' and " are over the number line. _ is in the lower right. And the funny key in the upper left changes your input mode from alphabet to Japanese characters.

I guess I never really thought about Japan having good shopping!!! Well, I guess I never really thought about Japan at all before.

I hope you are having fun!!!! I'm going to check on Morgan tomorrow, then go to the casino. Maybe he will want to go to the casino with me....
Bye Sister!
