So a while ago Kelly was informed that she was hired or "Contracted" by the somewhat new city of Nanjo, Okinawa. Like all things japanese they have a cute mascot, which I still not been able to find his name. Nanjo is located on the south eastern tip of Okinawa Island. Nanjo is the least populated city in Okinawa prefecture around 40k. It doesn't seem far from the most populated area of Okinawa Naha.
Also we have been in contact with Kelly's predecessor in Nanjo. She has a car and sounds like she's been in Nanjo for five years or more with the JET programme.
While Kelly Is really exited there are few fears for me, the trailing spouse. Okinawa is the poorest of all the prefectures of Japan. Even native Okinawans are having problems get jobs. Also there is not a lot of love for americans, because the US built 40 military bases on the best land and we don't have the greatest reputation either. It doesn't sound like there are many Jobs in general, So I pray the Lord does a miracle and open a job for me and if not it will be a good time for me to go back to school or learn to program, or even maybe do some twich.tv streaming.
