Hot July Nights

 

 It's been almost a month since my trip to California. And I still have pictures to share! Time has really flown and accelerated since getting back. Looking at the pictures, it's almost like the time there was a dream~ like this shot of the Conservatory of Flowers at Golden Gate Park.

 

Palace of Fine Arts, where we saw the swans nearby!

 

Waffles at Ole's Waffle Shop in Alameda with my friend.

 

Horses grazing in a field.

 

This mint box with my name on it, which I received as a birthday present 
from my friends some years back.

These days, the humidity level is rising in Japan, and the rainy season is punctuated with sunny days here and there. It's the season of festivals, fireworks, and summer vegetables; women passing on the streets carry sun umbrellas as they bustle by in summery skirts.

Dropped by Kinokuniya after work the other day, and spent a while just browsing books happily. I am so happy that they have a big English book selection there, I don't know how I'd survive without it, as Amazon Japan still has a somewhat limited selection. I love being able to touch and hold real books, flip the pages, see how they fit in my hand and how the words slip into my mind.
