It's been a while!
Hey folks, happy almost September. Another summer in Hokkaido is winding down and i suspect it won’t be long before the fall fashions hit the streets of Sapporo. I’d like to think that I had a productive summer. During the Obon holiday I went camping in both Shikotsuko and in Rishiri/ Rebun. My band (the indefatiguable 3 Skins) played our first beach concert in Zenibako – a success, I like to think. And my humble little balcony garden was fairly productive, supplying fresh tomatoes and chilis for good summer salsas. Oh yeah, I’ve been spending a lot of time at a farm in Ebetsu, as well. I’m learning to ride horses…much harder than I thought!
And you? Is there anything you can look back on that brings a smile when thinking about this short summer of 2013?
