I started this blog yesterday morning (6/10 in Japan), but stopped in the middle. Possibly to try to take a picture.
What I wanted to talk about was how lush and green the train route is becoming. Once you get a little inland, the heat and humidity go up. Green stuff seems to like that.
The strangest thing about going inland this time of year is the significant temperature difference. Thankfully, it isn't hot inside my inland schools yet. But the towns are usually warmer than Wakkanai. The second strangest thing is the noise. Some type of wildlife sings a steady chorus through the day. Whether bug or frog, I know not.
Yesterday morning, I landed one of the tables on the train. It was pretty exciting. I'm always excited by the trains with tables.
