The photos are beautiful! Adjusting to the changes sounds
challenging, but I envy you the encounters with different cultures.
What marvelous experiences you have had!

I was able to go to Japan for the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund this

JFMF is only a three week program, but it was an awesome experience.

Thanks for sharing!
