Another day, another chance for awesome pictures, right? 🙂 That’s how I feel about it, anyways!
Because of the blown-out pictures yesterday, this time I took out my normal lens. I needn’t have worried, though, since it turns out that the day was cloudy and rainy. You can really just never tell what’s coming in Tokyo!
I had a ton of fun, starting out again near my house..
Gas appears to be 148 yen/liter. That’s about $5.61/gallon. Is that about what it costs in the US now? High? Maaaaaaan, I remember thinking in high school that 99 cents/gallon was way too high. I’d drive around until I found a place that was 88 cents. But that was more than ten years ago, I guess…. gaaaaah..
Here in Japan, gas stations are almost never self-serve, though. I really enjoyed pumping my own gas as a kid… wait, as a kid? I’m still pretty young!
And next to that, conveniently, a speed-limit sign. 40kph. Which, as I just found out, is 64 mph! Holy cow! Wow, no wonder people seem like they’re all driving really fast… they are! Keep in mind that this is pretty much a rural road, not a highway.
I crossed the crosswalk..
And checked out the farms on the other side of the road!
And the hydrangeas. They’re so pretty this time of year!
No surprise, since it was so overcast, but a sudden rain started up.
So I snapped a few pictures and headed back home!
I stayed in the rest of the day, working on projects and work, but then headed out a few days later to go see my friend Kimberly….
… To be continued tomorrow! *^o^*
