Yesterday was a special day. It was the tenth-year anniversary of 9/11 in New York and the half-year anniversary of the 3/11 Tohoku earthquake/tsunami in Japan.
I spent almost 7 hours yesterday on two shinkansens to Fukuoka and then the subway to my friend’s place. We had a hearty chat last night in spite of the fact that she had to rise early today for a lab trip. We had an early celebration of the Mooncake Festival, feasting on little mooncakes she had from a friend and those I brought over from Shanghai.
I will explore the city on my own today. It looks smashing outside, gonna have a great time. Ciao!
