And second is that I wanna take in bath. The lifestyle in the USA is taking in shower. I didn't feel like this in Japan , now I earnestly want to go to a hot spring where there is in Hokkaido, Gunma  ,Shizuoka . In fact, it's a first time to take a AEI class .

A: A week has passed since I came to Oregon. I feel that I have become used to(or "accustomed to") living here. Today I want to write about my struggles with the American lifestyle and culture. First, American food has a very strong flavor. The food my host mother(host mom) makes is tasty/delicious, but the lunch which I always eat at school has a very strong flavor.

So I (really miss Japanese food) and want to eat Japanese food like udon. Second, I want to take a bath. In the USA, people generally take showers only. I have never felt like this being in Japan, but now I earnestly(truly, seriously) want to go to a hot spring in Hokkaido, Gunma, Shizuoka, etc.

This is actually my first time taking an AEI class. So I don't (really) have much time to write this diary(journal entry). I want to finish writing up my thoughts and impressions (as of the late) in a few days.
