Six Weeks in Kyoto!

The website lives! I have a reason, and, hopefully, time to post regularly this summer. I am currently in Kyoto, Japan, on a six-week study abroad program in landscape architecture. We are living in a 350-year-old temple in a much larger temple complex. Other than emphasizing becoming better designers, we will be learning how to watercolor by visiting temples and gardens and painting them.

I haven’t been able to take any real photos yet, so just take this one tantalizing ipod photo of my new home. Oh, and, of course, another one of the sign at the airport.

So many signs and cutesy cartoons everywhere… Japan is so far living up to my expectations. All of them. Expect more (real) photographs in the near future.
