Today it is my most favorite kind of day!!! The sky is bright blue and cloudless. The air is crisp and cold, but not so cold that I need my big wool coat. It is perfect, this kind of day energizes me and I forget how mushi atsui (hot and humid Tokyo can be during the summer). I could live anywhere that has this weather year round. Actually, the place I saw the most days like this was London, no wonder it is still my favorite city.
Unfortunately, this beautiful morning will be spent at the hairdresser getting a cut and then a visiting teaching appointment. I actually like both of these activities so the unfortunate part is that they are inside. This afternoon I must get out, walk and look at the changing leaves in the park and maybe even go to Akihabara (the famous electronics district) and buy a new camera to take pictures of those leaves and this beautiful day.
Alex has decided he wants Japanese food for every meal until we leave for London on Wednesday. That must involve sushi, tonkatsu, and Japanese curry. Then I suppose he will want fish and chips and bangers and mash. It has been so good to have him here for so long, what a blessing for us. We are sad to see him leave but realize that it is time for him to move on.
