Last Post in the United States

Tuesday was the last day to go to the Washington D.C. First, we went to the Capitol Building. It has a more impressive exterior than the Diet Building in Japan (kokkai-gizidou). The tour was very interesting. Next, we went to see the White House. Mike told me the meaning of the flag and maybe there was the President in the White House.

Yesterday, we visited The Gordon W. Prange Collection at University of Maryland. There were many published matter which was censored by GHQ in 1945-1949.I was very surprised because there are not only journal and newspaper but also books for child. I wanted to see thoroughly but we had a little time. If I have a chance, I’d like to go to there again.

After that we played boring, went to shopping and played Mini Golf. I played Mini Golf with Masahiro and Mike. Mike is very good at Mini Golf, so he won our competition! On the contrary, I’m poor at playing Mini-Golf and I was the last man of the three. But I don’t care because I enjoyed playing!

Tomorrow, we have to go back to Japan but I don’t want to. I hope our last day and night will be happy!

I enjoyed seeing the children's books at the Prange Collection also. You can see the prototypes of today's manga! Of course since I can't read Japanese I like the pictures.

I hope bowling wasn't boring! LOL I am also very bad at miniature golf. I am glad you enjoyed it, though!

Now you are back home in Japan, and I hope you are catching up on lost sleep. How was the flight? I am looking forward to reading your next post.
