Happy July everyone!

Still the rainy season but I am doing ok with my clothes dryer.LOL

I am excited. In Japanese Waku Waku is the sound of excitement, or rather the heart beat of an excited person.

So why am I excited? Wednesday my husband is taking me to take my Driver’s License test. The paper test and then in about a week I will have a driving test.

This is the freedom I have been craving, being able to take my children and my mother in law wherever they please. I cannot wait until we have the sun on our faces and the wind in our hair. To start I will probably share the car with my husband or my father in law. I am not sure how getting a car works here, but I hope to share it with you guys.

Mostly I just wanted to say I would be nothing without this blog!!!


 When I thought I was going to need a psychologist and a ticket home this blog brought me sanity.

I am so happy….I am so happy.

  1. Wishing you Good Luck, Tara, with your written and then your road test. You will ace it!

  2. Hey Tara,

    I’m a new follower of your blog, and I just wanted to tell you no matter what, hang in there. I’ve visited japan a few times and lived there for about three months and did get lonely. But now since I’m back home in The Bahamas I miss it. Call it a love hate relationship. I stayed in Ikebukuro and rarely saw anyone but Nigerians that I was told to stay away from. If and when I do come back, I would love to contact you. It would be good to have a sisterhood; support system.

    Wishing you and yours all the best!

    Sean 😉
