Rain in Hokkaido, Tohoku, and Kofu

My parents have come back from a five-day trip around Hokkaido and Tohoku. They did not take planes but took trains all the way. I called my mother on the phone. They seemed to have enjoyed the trip. Unfortunately, it was raining during their whole trip, she said. In the evening in Kofu, it started raining cats and dogs. When I was about to leave the office back home, the rain stopped, so I rode a bike. It started raining again on the way back home. I got all wet.

Then they started the experiments. I was there with them and left the building at 2 AM. … Continue reading

Lamborghini not repaired yet

In the morning, I happened to meet the lady who hit my Lamborghini (and me) yesterday. She looked so sorry. I said it was not a big thing.  She asked me to have it repaired, and  said that she will pay for it. I said thank you. However, it was a busy day today. The morning meeting lasted till 1 PM.

Rainy Saturday

It has been raining all day today, although it is not heavy; I rode my bike to my office and on the way back home. I am still preparing a proposal for the new project. After I came back home from the work, Katya and I made spaghetti together; Katya made a sauce and I, boiled spaghetti. It is still raining.  We are thinking how to persuade Maya-san to go out for a walk.
