I made it! After a few tears, a 2.5 hour plane ride, 30 min taxi trip and dragging a suitcase through a cobblestone street I found my new home for the next 11 weeks.
So far I have learned that there are more coffee shops here than I'll probably have time for, the sushi here is great, and the city is very big, and only 2 bags full of stuff won't totally fill a room. Getting a tour was a little overwhelming just because I saw a lot and was told a lot of information, but it was good.
I can't wait to explore more of the city. Expect pictures hopefully in the next week or so.
