We had 3 nights in Osaka, so after the aquarium etc. we still had a lot of time on our hands.
I spend a lot of it shopping in Ebisubashi, Shinsaibashi and Ame-mura.
It's funny. I have two kind of legs. The ones I use when I go shopping and the ones I use doing everything else. It's like power and determination makes me able to walk, walk, walk forever when I shop, haha.
There were so many funny bouldings and sky scrabers. Osaka is a very colorfull city! I was very surprised.
Another thing I enjoy was listening to Osaka-ben. I could actually hear that they talked differently, which made me kind of proud haha.
I tasted okonomiyaki for the first time. I bought it off an old lady selling on the street, which made the experience more fun. There's so much good food, arrrrg.
Except for these. Urg, I really can't eat octopuses anymore. Twice is enough for a whole lifetime in my case.
Everything wasn't fun and games though. I had a sort of attack. My stomach started aching in a no-period kind of way and it got worse and worse. We tried finding a doctor who could talk a little bit english, but on the first hospital we found none. My parents talked to our insurance and they had a contact to a hospital all the way in Shin-osaka. But we went there and they thankfully had a interpreter. At that point I couldn't really walk and the pain was unbearable.
I received drip for the first time in my life and 30 minutes later I was so much better.
I had this 18 months ago too. It's pain caused by too much stomach acid that goes up in the "tubes" to the stomach.
Now I'm all back to normal.
The whole system is so professional. Trains arrive on time, stations run as airports and hospitals far more efficient than back home.
Wooow, glitter Stitch!
