- a woman running along the path wearing a t-shirt that read " I am not a virgin"
- a guy sitting on a park bench, headphones on, cigarette in mouth, doing stretches
- three women hugging a tree

if it's one thing about Japan that I love, it's the odd eccentricities that people have, which seem to be tolerated. I just don't see anything of these things happening back in England (well, tree-hugging and bench stretching are not too unrealistic, I guess). I'm not making fun of these people at all. I'm always on the look-out for the unusual, and Japan just brings me something everyday that gives me a smile...or the creeps.
I feel like another break from drinking is in order soon, as I seem to be having a few too many parties of late. In fact, I have another party tomorrow night, and some gigs next weekend.... when am I going to get this done???
One month until I go to Bali. Can't wait to leave the country for a bit!!
Tomorrow I'm heading back to Japanese class for the first time in 6 months. Am looking forward to getting back into a regular study routine as the past 6 months I've not had any chance to actually study, though I've spent a ridiculous amount of time discussing major issues like ice-cream flavours with small children.
I'm also considering going to try Bikram Yoga, though I'm a little afraid of the amount of flesh on show in those classes - yoga at 100 degrees = bikinis. I'm still mulling over yoga clothes too - need a top that's not to slide around all the time and pants that don't fall down. Plus hoodie. I want that hoodie. (edit - I was very naughty and bought the hoodie in bright purple, rather than the pink and black I wanted).
Well, bed time for me I think. Need to give my brain some rest before tomorrow's lesson! I shall leave you with a picture from a walk last week that I took on my Holga and got x-processed:
