While in Kyoto, I am studying at Ritsumeikan University at the Kinugasa Campus. This campus has about 17,000 students compared to UBC that has about 40,000.
This week we have been sitting through a lot of somewhat interesting and somewhat monotonous orientation- but there have been some high points. In particular today I got to go into an earthquake simulator that simulated a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. I was scared and I wished I had peed before the simulation.
I managed not to pee myself in case your wondering, however I was shaking and my heart was pounding in my chest after the event.
I also got to sit in the Fire truck with the other Firemen which I was really stoked about. I felt like I was in grade two again- it was great!
Tomorrow is the last day of orientation and then I are going out for nomihodai ($20 for all you can drink)with all the skp students!

Please excuse the crappy photos, I took these with my old Samsung Mini that has pretty bad camera technology!
