Give yourself a pat on the back
Today, I drove to the north coast of Japan to go for a swim in the sea and eat some sushi. The water was great, but the beach was a little disappointing, and it was so hot! The sushi was excellent - really tasty and fresh. I went for a bike ride around the lake in the evening.
It looks like it might rain here later. I’m sure it was nice to have some rain with thunder and lightning the other day. Did it cool the air down a little?
I like the photos you’ve been posting on your blog. I’m sure other readers of your blog are enjoying them, too. How many pictures did you take after you got off the bus? It’s a shame that only one was saved, though. I can understand why you wanted to save space on your computer because I have the same problem with disk space, too.
I’m glad that the bell tower has been repaired many times in order to preserve such a wonderful building. I must admit that I’ve become quite fascinated by China and Chinese history since we started this blog together. I read an article about Chinese history last night in National Geographic. It said that the Han Dynasty was a remarkable period of history which was comparable, in some ways, with the Roman Empire. I’d love to visit Xi’an some day to check out the Terra Cotta army. Have you ever seen it?
Please give yourself a pat on the back for writing such great posts Jenny!
