Yesterday Craig and his sister, Erin, and I went for a short trip to Hagi. Hagi is an ancient samurai town in Yamaguchi prefecture. It was HOT but we rented bikes and went exploring anyway. It was a fun trip and it was nice to get the hell out of Shimane. On the way back we stopped in Tsuwano but the thunder and lightening scared us off after about 45 minutes. All day we had talked about dinner at Sushi-Zou in Hamada. When we arrived there were about 30 people waiting! 7pm is NOT the right time to go to Sushi-Zou. We had to wait a hour so we wasted some money at the dollar store and did PrintClub.
So now I am back at school, sitting on my ass doing nothing. Only three more days of this and then I am off to China!! I have a 9 hour lay-over in China before finally getting to Vancouver. I am thinking of getting a hair cut while I am there. It really needs to be cut and I'll have the time to kill.
The "new girl" arrives on Weds. Her name is Eleanor and she is from London. I have my fingers crossed that she won't mind taking care of my fish for a few weeks. Absolutely everyone I know is traveling in Aug. so it has been a chore to find someone to look after little Genki. I will have to suck up to her.
