On a Sunday Morning, Katya and I went to Gusto for breakfast as ususal.  I read a newspaper and Katya a book. Katya, Maya-san, and I drove to “Doryu Waterfall” in Kiyosato. The green was very fresh in early summer.       The fall is not big, but the water streams are delicately separated as if into thin white strings running down. “Waterfalls breathed out by dragon” is an adequate name. Katya got closer to the falls. The air was very fresh. Maya-san has changed in the nature; she looked more serious, relaxing, and independent. After visiting the falls, we dropped by “Kiyosato no Mori” park, too. We came home. … Continue reading

Texas Select returns

I have bought 72 cans of Texas Select, an imported non-alcoholic beer. The taste is comparable to ordinary beers, while the price is low because of no alcohol tax. Katya and I started to drink them.

interviews, cell phone, texas select

In the morning, we had interviews of the students for the entrance to the graduate school next spring.  It was a short interview: 15 minute each including presentations, questions, and answers. I think all the students did will; they should pass the exams. In the afternoon, Katya and I went to the au shop for a new cell phone. The new cell phone can be used outside Japan, or in Russia when she goes back. In the evening, Texas Select arrived. I made spaghetti and we had it with the non-alcoholic beer. After dinner, Katya and I watched “Sphere” with Maya-san.  It reminded me of “2001: A Space Odyssey” and … Continue reading
