So I had monday off (respect for the aged day) and now I have thursday off too (autumn equinox) how cool is that! Not much going on right now. Yesterday at nogyo was ok, much better than last time. Also, on monday I went up to lake Chusenji, which is north of Nikko, with Tara and Jacq. It was really beautiful, even with the mist and clouds so thick we couldn't see the mountain on the other side of the lake. It was pretty cold up there, in a few more weeks the leaves will have turned and we'll be going back, Tara says it's even more beautiful then.
