Around noon our sponsors picked us up and took us off base for our first real Japanese meal. We went to Stripes Noodle for ramen. Our sponsors had to order and pay for us because a) we could not read the menu and b) we did not have any yen. We have a lot to learn! We all ordered steak ramen with gyoza (potstickers) and it was amazing! My only problem was the chopsticks. It took me ten minutes to eat one potsticker. At this current rate I would probably starve, but I am sure I will improve out of necessity.
After lunch our sponsors took us to the Exchange to sign our new contracts for cell phones. We both have the new iPhone 5s. We signed the contract that was in Japanese, so I must have a lot of faith in the salesperson. I am looking for apps that will facilitate communication with friends and family. Any suggestions?
