Lake Saiko and Lake Kawaguchiko on Sunday

Bicycle for Chinese student

Today is Monday. In the morning, I met the Chinese student in our institute. He was doing OK during the weekend. We started talking in French.

He is now living in a dorm for international researchers and students.  I let him use my Lamborghini. I will be using my moped.
