I thought summer was here, but maybe i was wrong. The rain has retuened and I’m not happy about it. In the last three weeks I have seen three different snakes, a long green one, a short brown one that tried to bite my friend, and a long black one that scared my girlfriend half to death! In almost three years of living in Hokkaido I had never seen a snake and now I’ve seen three in as many weeks. Who knew Hokkaido had so many snakes!
