Our Travels: Mbithe in Japan | Part Two

(Read Part One here!)

So where did we leave off? Oh, right! I was in my lovely bedroom at the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Kansai (or just “the centre” to us), admiring the view, and realizing that I was finally in Japan. 🙂 I finally fell asleep at around 2 am (which was to be my sleeping time for the next couple of days). Still, I woke up fairly early at 7 am, enough time for me to have breakfast and attend orientation! 🙂

Mbithe’s ideal life would consist of an infinite loop of travelling to beautiful, idyllic locations with breathtaking views, amazing food, and nothing on her to-do list but relaxation and rejuvenation. Mbithe’s actual life involves a lot of proposals, research papers, and code, with just enough travel to make up for the rest of it.
