June 29.

Today I am going to Japan to go to a new school. My parents had decided to put in that foreign exchange program to get away from all the excitement at Hogwarts. Ron and Harry seemed most dissapointed but I promised them I'd write to them as much as possible.
It would also be tough to be without magic for a year but I'm sure I can manage. I'm Hermione Granger I could get through anything, then again, so could the boys. My plane sets out tomorrow, Mrs Weasly is taking Ron and Harry to the airport to say goodbye.
