Hi Tetsuro! Congratulations on creating your first English blog. Please be careful about jogging at night. It isn't safe to jog or walk alone at night here. I don't want anything to happen to you!
I hope by the time you read this, you won't be feeling quite so tired. I am glad you are here!

Hello, Tetsu!
This is Hiromi, and I was there last year as a participant actually! It's nice to meet you. ^^

I enjoyed reading about what you like! I also like watermelon, and summer is the best season to enjoy eating it, don't you think?

Hello Tetsuro,
Wow, you were really tired because of the flight and still had time and energy to start your blog. Wonderful!
I hope you still have opportunities to jog in Maryland and since it is summer, the sun sets rather late so you will probably have some light in the evening.
I like fruits a lot too but do not find such a variety here in my country.
Best regards,
Nina´s friend in Venezuela

Hello, Tetsuro.

Welcome to the U.S. and congratulations on your blog! I enjoyed reading your first post and I look forward to reading more.

Nina-sensei gives good advice about being careful when and where you jog. If you jog, be sure you have a partner and be sure that you don't jog at night! You can never be too careful!

I also like fruit. I particularly like different types of melon, and I also like peaches, strawberries, and pears. I like blackberries and blueberries, too. In Arizona, where I live, there is also a kind of fruit that grows on cactus. You can read about it HERE (look at the third paragraph).

Enjoy your time in Maryland!

Best wishes--
