This week is a milestone for me…. six whole months in Japan. So how’s all that going, then? Very well, and so quickly! Things can get on top of you sometimes – an immense language barrier, a workaholic culture, a seeming average of two square meters of personal space, an irrational longing to see some actual grass or some trees, and a generally chaotic existence – but I wouldn’t trade it for anything, and there’s still so much to see and do. But there’ll be plenty more on all that in the future!
To help me commemorate the occasion, please join me for a flimsily-premised montage: Fire Flowers 2: the Revenge of the Fire Flowers, taken at the Edogawa fireworks festival in August. Oh, and if you could also hum “That’s What Friends Are For” as you view it to help with the whole montage vibe, that would be great.
Plenty more at the fireworks gallery too!
