just a few minutes ago i was all like "meh, didn't see anything of the town today, just learning japanese" and now i'm like YYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYSSSSSS!!!
since i did not go out today besides to the public swimming pool (i bought a ticket for one month yesterday), i thought i at least could take some nice pictures of the surroundings from the roof. so i picked up my camera, went up two floors and ran into the manager of the apartments i live in. he isn't around quite so often, i was really lucky. why? i live in a traditional japanese style apartment with tatami (mats) on the floor. for sleeping you only have a really thin futon, and, since i'm used to my comfy, worn ikea matress my back didn't like it at all. so, i asked him if i could have a second futon and he said yesssssssss! he made an exception for me and asked me to not tell anybody, so hush! don't tell anyone where i live or some might get envious.
yes, i know, it's easy to make my day.
