Daily Journal: Day 1

This is my experiment in writing in both English and Japanese. I want to both better understand my students and be able to express myself to my boyfriend who only speaks Japanese. It’s difficult to communicate on higher level subjects. But I’m committed to working on it.

Question 1: Where would you like to visit the most? 

Date: December 2, 2018

I really really really want to visit Machu Picchuu. machu-pichu-639174_1920

Ever since I was a little, I have been interested in ancient societies. Of course, I started out being interested in the ancient Egyptians. Something fueled by my love of cats.

As years passed, this interest gradually grew into interest for the Incas, Mayans, and Aztecs- the ancient civilizations of South America.  Because of my father’s profession being that of a plant physiologist, the fact that the Incas really pioneered terrace farming meant that I naturally gravitated towards them.

Furthermore, the Incas had a really complex, well-known hierarchy because they withstood the onslaught of their conquerors and disease for the longest period of time. So, there are more records of their civilization. Check out some cool information here with a coffee. https://www.dkfindout.com/us/history/incas/

Kid’s websites might seem oversimplified. But they provide a good framework that you can use to move onto more critical evaluation using other resources later on. However despite devouring all the information I could find, I have deferred going to Peru in favor of other places such as Bali, Korea, and Japan because they are nearby.

But, I’m going to change that! I need about 200,000 yen to cover the flight and general costs in the area as well as have additional emergency money in the event something bad happens. So, I’m going to work to save 15,000 yen a month to go on this trip in 2020.

でも、私はこれ事態を変わる。費用一切と有事のために200000円が居る。 そしたら32平にこの旅行してためだめに毎月に15000円の金を貯めてみて。
