biding my time

August 1, 2005

I have exactly a week left here, and I have caught the worst cold. Shivering in the 30 degree Okinawan summer humidity, and my voice is just the hissing sound of rattling husks. Packing can wait – for the time being am biding my time with vitamins, caffeine and basking on flat surfaces while my immune system deals with the intruders. It’s going to be a busy week – apart from preparing for leaving, I’m practicing taiko every evening, ill or not ill, for the year’s biggest festival at the weekend. Tomorrow, I’ll be walking round an uninhabited island. (cancelled at the last minute by my bosses. Balls.)
