Last Tuesday, I confirmed that I had a job interview with Berlitz in Ã”saka, on Thursday. I called in my resignation from NOVA, with one day’s notice, at about 11:30.
By 11:00 the next morning, I’d sent my luggage to a guest-house in Ã”saka, and was on the train to TÃ´kyÃ´, ready to catch the shinkansen to my destination.
I was only in Ã”ta for four weeks, and though I felt like I’d exhausted the possibilities I had there, I hardly knew the place at all. But I didn’t want to know it, either: I just wanted to leave.
Here’s one last photo that I took at the Bell Town mall, because now I’m gone, I feel happy. Super!
