On Sunday, I got an e-mail from Rotary saying I was assigned to D2830 in the Aomori prefecture! For those of you who don’t know where that is, it is the northernmost prefecture in Honshu, and just south of Hokkaido. The climate is about the same as it is in New York, maybe a little warmer.
I expected to get this way later, so I am very excited! I still don’t know the exact city I’ll be in, but knowing this makes everything feel way more real, like I’m really going this year.
