今日フジテレビでめっちゃ感動しましたドラマを見ました。介助犬ムサシ ~学校へ行こう! 綾野まさるさんの小説(介助犬武蔵と学校へ行こう)の元に撮影されたドラマです。 なかなかかわいい犬でした! でもちょっと悲しい結局は惜しいですね。 みんな小説も読んでみてね。
First week of driving class

I have taken 6 theory lessons so far. In Japan they are divided in two streams, the theory lessons which teach you the regulations, common practice...etc. And the practical lessons which actually teach you how to drive. There is also an aptitude test which test your responses and your character as a driver..etc. You don't have to take the theory lessons in order so what I have learned so far are:
  1. Passing cars
  2. Driving signs and symbols
  3. Right and Left turn techniques
  4. "Keep left" rule
  5. Tips for getting your license
So I am learning how to pass other cars before I know how to turn right or left... hmm.

My first "driving" lesson will start at Sunday and the very first two will be driving on a simulator! Sounds like TV game to me.

Lesson Count:

Theory: 6 (19 to go)
Practical: 0 (34 to go)

Driving School

I have signed up for driving school today. I always want to get my license but for various reasons I didn't take it, in particularly when I was in Hong Kong which is much cheaper. When I travel around and you found yourself without a car you are very limited in the form of transportation you can take in some places. Hopefully I can get my license in about 3 months....

After 3 years living in Tokyo I have finally bought a bicycle. It's great to go anywhere you like and Tokyo is a nice city to ride. However it's terrible to ride thought the shibuya center street... there are just too many people. Walking is actually faster if you want to go thought the center street.
