Well, it’s been just over two months since I hopped on a plane and into my life in Japan. So, I think it’s about time to share some more of my experiences and reflections with you all. During this time, I’ve had even more chances to become familiar with the frequency and power of disasters in Asia. I’ve been through my first and second typhoons, and was surprised and saddened to learn that a popular hiking mountain, Ontake-san, erupted claiming the lives of over 50 people on September 27th.

For my final CAPI blog I thought it would be interesting to share an excerpt from a large assignment I put together for a directed study I did simultaneous to my internship activities. The excerpts below include some context, as well as two of the least academic (most enjoyable to read) sections from a larger essay I wrote to be an "autoethnography" of my experiences living in Japan. Enjoy in no particular order.

What is autoethnography?
