So. I'm in Kawasaki now. It's a city area unlike any other I've been
in. My other areas except for Kichijoji were "countryside" areas.
They had big shopping centers and lots of people and lots of houses
and lots of really tall buildings; it felt certainly felt like city.
Kichijoji is a "city" area, but it's designed to attract shoppers and
tourists, so it's more organized and pretty. Kawasaki is just city.
It's like a network of canyons, except it's made of buildings instead
of rock. So many people, so many shops, so much stuff packed together
I haven't really noticed the noise, though. There's plenty of noise
out on the street, but it doesn't bother me.
My companion is Elder Brooksby. I don't have time to explain it, but
I had this image of him in my head based on what I'd heard people say
about him (including his past companions), but then upon meeting him I
found out that he doesn't match his reputation very much at all. He's
pretty awesome though. He only has a few months left on his mission.
