El Scorcho

So if you are like me, and you are looking for a place in Eastern Asia where you feel both 1) Very Poor 2) Very illiterate along with 3) extremely unhip, you should try the Kyoto Institute of Art and Design, where we are having our classes 2-3 times a week. I was forced, unfortunately, to resort to a McDonalds for lunch yesterday (Sunday) and an extra value meal cost me 530 yen, or about $5. McDonalds is convienent, however, for having pictures for a menu, which is good since I understand absolutely zero Japanese, a quiet shock after being relatively profiscient at Chinese for the two weeks we were there. To top it all off, I am still wearing the two t-shirts I left Oklahoma with 2 months ago, which is killing my fashion credibility in possibly one of the most fashion savy parts of the Eastern egde of the world.
