Well not much has been going on lately, all the car friends are on an exercise so we haven't got to hang out at all lately. Yesterday Claude and I helped his sister move. SO I had to wake up at 5am and drive an hour to Ruston, pack up a u-haul, then drive about 4 hours to Dallas. Then we had to unpack the u-haul at her new apartment which contained stairs with a turning point about half way up, so it was hella lame trying to fit these two big couches, dressers, washers/dryers ect up all these stairs. Then once we finished we had to drive about 3 hours back to Shreveport. Got home about 9 and made it to bed about 130am ish. It was a very long and exhausting day :(

So yea I drove the big body u-haul bc lord knows with claude behind the wheel we wouldn't have made it out of Ruston lol, here are 2 pics I took while driving

I thought this one was funny: "Speed Kills, Slow Down and Live"

Also I found out yesterday that I actually wont be in Yokohama like I though, I will be in a city about 12 miles south of it called Yokosuka (Pronounced Yokoska). Although I was a little disappointed at first that I wasn't actually going to be in Yokohama I think this may be good to for a few reasons.

1) It still is a fairly large city, 400,000 people.
2) It is only 12 miles from Yokohama, so a short train ride would take me to the big city
3) This could be both beneficial and lame, there is a navy base in Yokosuka, which could be good for maybe my parents coming, making a navy friend to help me ship stuff for a lot cheaper ect; on the other hand i was hoping for as minimal Americans as possible where I am at. The more Americans around the more Americanized junk you see, and then I may be easily thought as a military guy by the locals. Not that anything is wrong with American things, but I am just looking for the most Japanese/traditional experience as possible while I am there.

Oh well though that's life and it could definitely be a lot worse, and from what pictures I have seen and what I have read on Yokosuka it seems to be a very nice place and have some pretty decent beaches, which could be really nice since thats something I have wanted in my living conditions for a while now.

Here are a few pics that I have gotten online

Yokosuka is A nd B is Yokohama
