At 5PM, I took Maya-san in mini and drove to Shimosuwa, where my parents live (and I was born).
I took a highway.
We dropped by Yatsugatake service area. Maya-san sniffed around. She has been staying home most of the time, so venturing out seemed to be stimulating her.
From the service area was seen the combination of a highway and rice fields.
At my parents’, Anju was there to avoid the summer heat.
Anju and Maya-san said hello. They are now sort of friends, although they still insist on showing their territories and priorities.
Maya-san was happy to see my parents, too.
Maya-san naturally looked outside during the nights for cats. This is her profession forever.
