This week we are still preparing for the trip. We decided last weak that we need to step it up as a group and get to work on our film. I have been looking into getting soccer footage for the film, but I have yet to get any. For the past month I have been practicing with chop sticks daily. I feel I have greatly improved since my first day. I also went to a Japanese restaurant to try some food. It was all delicious; I even had shrimp which I usually despise. That's all for now.
