Over the August break I went back to the US to go to my friend’s wedding. He finally got married after dating his girlfriend for about ten years!
The wedding took place in Iowa City, Iowa, which is a small college town surrounded by hundreds of miles of farms. I decided to fly into Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is where my brother lives, and then drive the 300 miles (480 km) south to the wedding.
So, I got to see my brother and take him to the wedding, which was nice. I made sure to rent a good car for the drive. The wedding was at the concert hall for the University of Iowa, which was really nice and spacious. There were maybe 100 people there. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a groomsman (付き添い役), so I got to participate in the wedding and sit at the table in front for dinner. It was a great time!
