The U.S. is a place I don't have to speak in Japanese, as though I cannot speak in English. I'm here with my teammate, Kondo, this time. I don't have a driver's license now because my license was canceled due to high speed. I had Kondo get an international driver's license and went to rent a car. The reason why he was denied was that no insurance covers a driver who is under 21 years old with an international license. We were very disappointed. I watched the fight of KJ Noons vs Yves Edwards. I trained with KJ at AMC and he won. He defeated Nick Dias, who I was going to face next, by TKO before. He is doing very good now. I went to TGI Fridays for dinner.

George who fought Imanari in Japan gives us a ride. I feel like everything in the U.S. is bigger, including bigger portion of food and people are so open minded and have bigger heart. I stay with Kondo and George and have fun. We eat either meats or sushi everyday. Diet Coke here tastes different than the Japanese one, but I like it.
