I miss the rainy season.
Kofu is one of the hottest places in Japan. Air conditioner is essential now.
It has become a difficult time of the year especially for Katya, who is leaving for Vladivostok on July 31; she still needs to wait.
Summer is hard for Maya-san the dachshund, too, who needs to walk close to the hot, paved street.
My parents living in Shimosuwa have bought a second house by the river. We will try to stay there.
