Hey folks ~ how is everybody doing? Finally, after weeks of warm then cold then warm then cold again temperatures, it seems spring has fully come. Did you attend any cherry blossom parties? I was in Bali for golden week and by the time I returned, all of the blossoms had fallen in Maruyama Koen. Oh well…it couldn`t be helped. Anyhow, I`m looking forward to spending some time outdoors and perhaps going camping in the next few weeks. Make the most of the warm weather while you can – winter comes quickly here in Hokkaido!!
