I'm sorry to hear that it's still a bit cold, but yeah, dry makes it endurable indeed.Quote:
Barbecues! I see pork chops marinades and brochettes!Quote:
On another note, today was thoroughly sunny and an utterly awesome day. I'll post some pictures and maybe a vid or two, depending on how drank I am to avoid feeling silly as I post those vids.
.... yeshh let us see some of your vids
It's pretty easy, I've posted some on youtube already. ^^ They are set to public viewing, so please be my guest (though from today's vids, there is only one where I speak english, and I might not be able to upload it tonight).
Edit : I won't be able to upload it tonight, so it's for tomorrow (in the morning or at lunch break, maybe).

Indeed, I couldn't have hoped for an er day. Well, the overall ratio of work/delight days is still a bit too high from my perspective, and most importantly, it's organised in a way that it turns out to be very difficult to share some real quality time with both the hosts and the co-woofers, as none of us have a day off in common, and the hosts do notQuote:
nottake any day off themselves. Crazy people!

It was a compulsory course (elementary school and high school). Started when I was 8..
Lame joke aside, I'm deeply sorry that you had to go through that awful course. English compulsory course makes sense, but french... nope, I don't get it.

So, as written earlier...
I'm kinda jelly after seeing the miscellaneous pics ....so wanna be there
Ps: there is nothing to feel sorry about. Learning an additional language is beneficial for one's development. Besides, French is not a terrible. On the contrary, is the language of love . Yet, it did not stick to my brains cos of the resentment I had for my French teacher...he was a creepy guy, who asked us once to clean up a graveyard ...of course I skipped the class of the crazy guy who adored Tristan Tzara

The misc pics are so beautiful, particularly the cherry blossom one
I've been out of this thread too long, I missed your departure
From the vids and photos everything looks fine. In which part of Japan are you exactly ? And from you first video, it really seems like Japanese don't like beaches. It reminds me the one in shikoku which was full of concrete too, although there was a wonderful elevator music in the background that you don't seem to have.
And have you got some day off for the golden week, anything planned ?
Yupyup it is, overall it is grandiose. I'm currently in the Aichi prefecture, staying in Ehimacho to be precise.Quote:
That depends, regarding their seeming lack of interest for beaches. Because the Uchinada beach (near Kanazawa), back in 2009, was attended by a lot of soothingly wishful japanese at the time. The video was taken during a workday, and the spot where I landed at seemed, given the road leading to it and the really tiny parking area nearby, like a more or less unknown spot, quite wild. There were silhouettes of people chilling to the far east (left of the camera's field of vision). Are there pictures of the beach from Shikoku that you took, somewhere on the internet?
And elevator music? Sérieusly? Une plage hi-fi, ça c'est le l'luxe!
I'm pretty sure that they do, though I can't guarantee it, but given the interest that they have for wine, especially around the big cities, there is no way it wouldn't earn some hearty welcome in Japan.Quote:
I'm not involved by the Golden Week in any way I believe, as I'm living a rural way of life these three months, and if my next two hosts are acting the same way as this one, than they won't take any day off either, and so won't I (except for the one-day 'holiday' each week). It kinda follows the idea of grape harvest in France,, if you catch my drift, what I am doing here, except that they regard free time and leisure in a very specific manner in Japan.

Damn, Mikawa Bay's beach isn't really beautiful at day, but at night, furthermore while running under a gleaming starry sky with the nearby mountains covered by the weaks inhabitants lights' reflections upon a slight haze, all that bathed in music...
Well I have a friend who made a video but I would need a software to split it, anyone knows an easy one. I could also add the mythical moment of the wasp in the train, I just rewatch it and it was probably one of the most memorable moment of my travel there.

In the end Windows movie maker did the job,
Here is a link toward the first video. I promise I didn't add any sound
I will add the second one as soon as I can upload again, it seems my connexion has a bug...
