Before my classes I made lunch, said egg goulash with mayo corn and the rye bread. It was a delight to eat normal bread again~ After my classes I decided to walk down to the shopping district, because I didn’t want to miss the Hydrangeas in full blossom. This time I was walking on the left side of the river, more exactly all along the Higashioji-dori, because I was hoping to find some shadow there. Then I remembered the place where I ate crepe after visiting the Heian Shrine, and since I felt like eating it again, I dropped by. Surprisingly I managed to find out immediately :D It was hard to pick one, but I tried the almond-choco one and it was yummy – full of almond *__*
On the way I saw many shrines and temples, but it’s almost not surprising anymore. As expected, the Hydrangeas blossomed beautifully over the past week and these blues ones are just gorgeous. If I remember right the Hydrangea at my grandma’s garden was light pink, and the blue was is completely unknown in my country. I saw some rebel flowers with a different color like violet or pink, and there seem to be more types too. I got some manga and DJs, and tried a Magi gacha this time, when I was searching for the Nakamura Asumiko limited box at Animate (this time in vain too). After this I decided to walk home along the riverbank of Kamogawa. It was really great and refreshing in the hot temperatures, and I saw a lot of different birds like ducks, eagles or cranes.
On Saturday I had to make a soup – I decided on the mushroom & peas one, because I just love this combination. Then I went to Seika to read a bit, and to collect a few papers, but they had open campus, so it was only a half success. On the way home I got a few volumes of manga at Book Off (someone stop me from wasting so much money!!!). When I was there I decided to check out the surroundings of Takaragaike – meaning the actual lake this time.
I have read you can observe fireflies in the first half of June there, but I wanted to check out the location before going out in the evening. The sun was merciless and it was so hot, but it was still worth – the nature is pretty there, and quite big too. To tell the truth I just couldn’t find the time to hunt for the fireflies later, but it was still worth going, and I can always try next year. On the way home I saw another strange-behaving crow. This time there were others as well, and it looked like they were there standing by their mate who wasn’t able to fly. It was very interesting.
My Sunday was nothing special, just the obligatory rounds at home with studying and washing my hair and stuff. The only interesting this was the insect on my door, which shed off its skin and spent a long time just standing next to it – hm…
Since I stayed up to read manga very long the day before, it was clear I wouldn’t manage the first class today – and I skipped too. In fact I had to prepare so many things, like organizing not too heavy bags and lunch, that I was almost too late to the second class. I was almost running from Mototanaka. Actually it’s the second to last station, and while the distance to KyoDai is the same as from Demachiyanagi, if you start to walk earlier, you arrive earlier too. I only took a pass to Demachiyanagi, because it’s more convenient, if you wanna go to town, but if you’re in a hurry it’s good that you can get off sooner as well. The day went buy, but I couldn’t really bear it. After classes we went to signs some papers to the Foreign Student Division, and get the results of the health check – all green, of course.
After this I went to the 100 yen shop at Hyakumanben, because I needed some new stuff and they had the “11th is for free” discount today. I got one more box for food and the thermobag in which I can carry my lunch to KyoDai on Mondays – very useful. Got more towels, a hanger and a basket for carrying my laundry too – and of course new sweets! I’m especially fond of the choco sunflower seeds, the only backside is, you just can’t stop eating it XD The white cookie bars aren’t bad either, but I had to realize once again, that I like choco better XD; The other two things will be introduced when I try them. Other than that, nothing special, I had a headache, probably due to the lack of sleep, so I was pretty useless in the evening.
