typhoon brewing

June 10, 2004

I’ve visited seven cities in the last week, and stopped long enough to look round five of them. The first was Kobe, for work, followed by Kyoto, Hiroshima, Kumamoto, and Fukuoka. I had to pass through Naha (Okinawa) and Osaka for the purpose of catching or disembarking from planes. Of the five cities that I visited, all but Kyoto were new to me, all were different, and I would like to tell you about them, but… there’s a typhoon coming. Typhoon number 4. The previous three missed, but this one looks like it’s going to hit. I’m sitting in the elementary school writing this at 12:30pm, and the rain is lashing down outside and the wind is picking up. The teachers had to come to school today, but the kids got the day off. Usually elementary school is much harder work than junior high, but today I just sat about drinking coffee and playing badminton in the gym with some of the other teachers. So anyway, the typhoon isn’t due to hit for another couple of hours, but I’ve got to get home and put my picnic table and chairs somewhere where they won’t get hurled through someone’s window. If I can be bothered to go out in the rain, I should also go to the supermarket, too. To stock up, like. So, Kobe (etc) will have to wait.

Better go.
