Andreas’s Japan journeys

Suite suit

Ok, somebody hit me. Hard. In the face. I’ve just gone and spent 35,000. I am so broke I can’t believe me. That was half the money I had on my bank account after transferring money from my VISA to my newly created Japanese bank account. First I had to wait an hour at the bank to get the money transferred, all because today’s banking lesson at school proved to be a bit inefficient. Luckily there was a girl at the bank who was there last time, who could speak frustratingly little English, and she was very patient and helpful. Ok, so I got my money transferred and withdrew some of it to try out the ATM machines. Wow, they looked high tech, but in the end, I felt as if Sweden actually does have better ATM machines. Especially after finding out that I must have my bank account book with me every time I want to withdraw money, and not just my bank card.

Anyway, once the banking procedure was finally over, I headed for Aoiyama. It’s a clothing store, and they seem pretty big in Japan. And all their posters have foreginers on them posing with clothes, and not Japanese. Strange. I went inside and spat a few lines from my Berliz pocket Japanese hand-book which proved effective enough. I got help selecting some pants, and the jacket I had chosen suited me already. I chose the same brand for the pants as jacket to get a matching set, colourwise. The sales clerk also wanted me to buy some shoes, but after calculating the price (35,000 I had to say it again), I decided that shoes for 10,000 (though I would get 3,000 off if I bought them now), was not worth it. My own shoes have to do for the moment, and to tell you the truth I don’t plan on ever buying those black shoes anyhow. A bit too snobbish for me. With only the suit, I think I turned out pretty good anyway actually. It’ll be fun to see the reaction in the classroom next Monday.

Wowee! Watch out, here comes Mr. Gum (says so inside my jacket). I hope I’m not mistaken for some foreign maffia dude… Damn, forgot my sun glases though
