((Finally remembered to reply! Sorry!! @@))
Interesting...I don't think states in the US are as different as countries tho. You'll always find the "American spirit" in each state hahah. The people are very different state to state, though the culture may not be. Ahh I wish I had miles. @@ I don't fly nearly enough to rack them up, and I use different airlines every time so its not worth trying hahah.
I see. Oh I know all about the wonders of teenagers. I teach high school here and my students are fabulous. (Of course they are Japanese; if I was teaching American students I might not be as interested hahah.) Bleh, that doesn't sound like Japanese food at all! I mean, some foods have plenty of sauce (Western-style Japanese food, anyway), but there's definitely not all that much spice.
Because there's no map data?? No PokeStops, no Gyms, not even wild Pokemon. Nothing. We don't even know when it'd going to be released; I've got a while gaming community AND my students looking for info and we have no idea. It's all about waiting for now...
Ah, heard of it but don't know much about it. Tbh I don't know much about any country other than the US and Japan. I just looked up the statistics though and it's HUGE, wow! The populations is like 1/4th of all of Japan!?
