Leaving for Japan
The next morning we all recieved matching yellow shirts. We all took a group picture and then loaded up in a bus. When I got to the place where they weigh your bags my checked bag was 4 pounds over... Ahh! I took out tons of things to carry with me... When they re-weighed my bag I had taken out 10 lbs.. Before I could put some stuff back in they took it! I ended up improvising by stuffing everything in a large plastic trash bag like luggage bag...classy. Later I ended up buying a backback there, however. After the AFS staff left us we all sat around for about an hour before it was finally time to board the plane.
