We went to the Washington Post yesterday. I've never seen how to make newspapers even in Japan. I was very surprised because I heard that they cost much money to make newspapers.
There were a lot of paper and many machines I've never seen before.

We also went to the supermarket and had dinner. I bought many snacks or candies as souvenirs.
After going to the supermarket, we ate chickens. they were very delicious!!
Before leaving, Sophia kissed us on the cheek!! It was nice and I was so glad!!

Hello, Kana!
Visiting the printing plant of the Washington Post sounds really interesting to me becaues I'm interested in seeing something that isn't looked at usually. ^^ Wow, Sophia kissed you? That's so sweet~. ^^

Hello, Kana.

I enjoyed reading your impressions of the printing plant, supermarket, and Pentagon City Mall. I think you got a lot of cultural information from each of these activities.

I was particularly interested to read your reactions to the sizes of clothes here. It's amazing how easy it is to find clothes for really big, tall people (both men and women). Finding smaller sizes is not so easy, however. The numbers used for sizes here are also interesting, I think.

A friend in Brazil wanted to send me a pair of Havaianas (Brazilian "flip-flop" sandals) and she asked me what size. I said 8 and she said "Oh, that's too small! You probably wear a size 39 or 40!" I was surprised at the difference in the numbers!

I hope you continue to enjoy your stay in Maryland.

I had never visited a newspaper printing plant before yesterday, either. It was really interesting. Those presses were gigantic!!!

I'm glad you were able to experience a PDA (this is a sort of joking slang used by some young people means "public display of affection"!). It's not something you find in Japan too often!
