It has cooled down considerably this week, the cicadas are all but quiet now, so I guess autumn is coming. Which means that it is the perfect time for a holiday of my own! This time I will go back to Europe for a couple of weeks to visit family and friends in both Austria and Germany.
I have been very busy this week to buy presents, even though I finally saw the light and purchased only Japanese sweets this time, which makes things much easier. However, in compensation, one of my close friends sent me on a shopping spree to buy him a decent, real yukata summer kimono after he had seen mine (which is very real, but not really decent for a woman my age). After spending a lot of time looking for something according to his specifications, I finally declared them unobservable and bought him a yukata I liked…
Anyway, I will be gone for two weeks and I will leave you without any posts for this time (not that anything interesting will happen in Kyoto while I’m gone anyway). Have a nice time, and tune in for my next post on September 20th.
Where will you be in Germany? Look forward to meet you (if possible).
