This is going to be me in tokyo. "Ikura desu ka?""...""Arigatou Gozaimasu!"I'm going to be poor.
hahaha! Eh, don't worry! You're going to have an awesome time. And yes, you are going to be poor. hahhaa
Do you know if I can pay by card everywhere? The UK has spoiled me, I never carry cash. And I don't know Yen and.. and.. HELP!
Hmm, dang, I *think* they prefer cash in most places. They probably do take credit card in most big places, though, like department stores and supermarkets....I think? We don't even use debit cards in Japan so I think I had to have cash with me all the time. I think. Yen-Euro conversion is easy at the moment though---it's basically 100 Yen = 1 Euro. So just take off two zeros off the Japanese price and you should be set!
The most amazing conversation I had in a foreign language that I don't speak was, "Good job; you block the lady coming from behind from cutting the queue." I just nod my head and smile. Amazing what hand sign can do for you =D
THAT is a pretty random and awesome conversation!! Yes. I'm definitely re-discovering the miracles of gesturing!!!
Hahahahaha!!! I can totally understand that! And italians looooooooove talking so much :P One learns one sentence and isn't at all prepared to hear the next 10 sentences hihihi! Enjoy :D(K)
People have been increeedibly nice so far and tolerant of my really shitty Italian! Hooray! It's going to be weird coming back to Berlin and actually be able to communicate with people without gestures and whatnot. haha!
