I haven’t posted one of these in a while.
At an international faculty party, in which I was probably the least traveled of the bunch, we got to talking about where we were going on our long weekends. I teach on Mondays and Wednesdays at CBS so I usually have four days off in a row to explore. In the past I’ve gone primarily to Norway and Sweden. I mentioned that I was undecided and asked for their feedback. I was debating between Estonia, several places in Germany, or Finland. Someone asked, “You’ve been to Prague, right?” When I said “no” they all universally agreed that Prague should be tops on my list. So here I am.
Tonight is my last night in Prague. What a place! Were it not for the ridiculous number of tourists and selfie sticks, this place would be near perfect.
The day after I arrived in Hiroshima, three years ago today, I went for a walk and ended up at Hiroshima Castle. I was hoping to go to the Hiroshima Carp baseball game that night. However, the skies opened up, and the rain came down in buckets. Maybe you can see some of it in today’s photo. I got in a taxi, and the driver told me the game had been cancelled. Luckily there was a day game the next day so I went to it instead. However, that delayed my journey to Osaka which meant that I missed a Koshien game.
Today I’m boarding a plane for Copenhagen so expect some photos from Denmark soon. I’d like to get back to Japan next summer. Anyone have a job for me in Japan for a few weeks or a couple months next year? It need not pay much. よろしくお願いします. 行って来ます.
