We caught the train back to Tokyo, to Ginza, a ...
... will start getting really emotional at any given time during the day. A particular girl whose become my little buddy has been really sensitive about Camp Adventure leaving. Her and I have a really special bond..and it makes me so sad to see her start to cry and tell me that she doesn't want me to go back home to Iowa.
