#524 It’s my jam by Jordan Rondel – Tokyo Dreaming

I’ve never been to Tokyo but I constantly dream about going there. Everything about it attracts me – the culture, the food, the people, the lights, the cherry blossoms. I plan to move there at some stage, if only for a few months, to sip on jasmin green tea and experience the ebullient city. I know someone who went there to teach English. She got a beautiful apartment to live in, rent free, and got well paid for teaching conversational English to some sweet little Japanese girls. Since it’s unlikely that I will be able to afford staying at the Park Hyatt, that sounds pretty perfect to me. In a city of 13 million people it would be hard to become someone but I rather like the idea of being lost in translation.
