zushi city

Where I live there is a town nearby thats called zushi. I decided today since it was such a nice day, why not? well apparently so did cindy because she met up with me there about 20 mins after I got there! Totally grateful!!! I was in the wrong area for shopping when she called so I headed back to station. After a little bit we found eachother, I was at the south exit near the beach and she was at the north by the shopping district. So I made my way north and we first stopped at a 100yen store. My new favorite place! I had been searching and searching on my own for one and she brought me to the perfect one. I got tons of stuff for my house for 945yen!! thats like 8.50 dollars!!! Then she took me to another 100yen store and I got dishes and stuff. Its hard starting out with nothing....
Anyway so we then continue to wander past grocery stores bakeries and all kinds of stuff! We actually stopped at a grocery and she picked up some stuff for Nabe- or hot pot meal. Then we went back to the first 100yen store because right next to it was some other store that had the floor cleaner that I needed. Cindy was soo nice, I didn't anticapate all these purchases so she ended up helping me pay for alot of stuff! I totally apreaciate it! she's been one of the biggest helps I've had out here, seeing as my sponsor up and dissapeared the night I arrived... but thats another story. Well we headed back to base and I picked up a ricecooker because I don't have any appliances nor have them coming so it's my first kitchen staple. It's decent sized and was under $20 which made me even happier! well I have to go start dinner now bye bye

So sorry about your sponsor...that sucks! I loved living in Japan though...so much stuff to discover! I really miss the hot drink vending machines...those were the best when it was cold out!
The 100 yen stores are out of this world!!!!

Ooohh, tell me how you like Moss Burger! I used to get the "burger" but the bun was made out of rice? It's been a while...
The mini mart SUX!
I worked in the Commissary for a while, oh the memories!
I may have to ask you to pick up some beauty stuff from Japan for me :)
Of course, I can send you some stuff from the states...
