¡Hola, amigos! So, this Saturday was Cinco de Mayo (May 5th in Spanish), and my best friend and I went to Seattle to celebrate! We went all Mexican to honor the day, and had Mexican food at this really great restaurant wayyy into the heart of Seattle. We used the Google Maps on the iPhone to find it, but due to construction work, it took us an hour because of all the detours we had to take. Totally worth it, though! The food was MMMyummy. (: After devouring tacos and enchiladas, and rinsing it all down with tasty iced mint tea, we hit the streets. It was really beautiful with the sun shining and the temperature in the high 60s, and people couldn't stop smiling. Many women were dressed in colorful dresses wearing straw hats, and many men wore shirts with Mexican print. There were also tons of street musicians playing Mexican music, and my friend and I had a blast - without a doubt! I can't wait for next year's Cinco de Mayo. (: ¡Adiós!
My name is Ann, and I'll be blogging about my college life here in Pacific Lutheran University. As my first post on PLU International Voice, I'll talk a little about myself.
I was born and grew up in Tokyo, Japan, came here in the United States about three years ago and got a high school diploma in Connecticut. Now here I am a freshman in Pacific Lutheran University, intend to study in business.
What do I do besides studying in PLU?
Well, besides studying I am a part of Global Student Club. We organize events for international students and also other domestic students to socialize and have fun. I also am in ASPLU (student government in PLU) Entertainment Committee. We organize events for all the students in PLU; we mainly have local artists coming in to our campus and have free concerts.
Other than those that I listed, I hang out with my friends in my dorm room, or I do my hobbies!
Next update will be more about what's going on in campus now!
