a week to go
Christmas is here
... there, and everywhere. Last weekend I was a few hundred miles southeast of Paris, rather overwhelmed by the massive waves of tourists, nevertheless all impressed with shops and streets decorated up for Christmas, with the distinct mixture of French and German cultures. It might not exactly have been cold enough for mulled wine, but definitely festive enough to tell me of the arrival of upcoming holidays.
Now my schedule for the coming days is hectic but I am quietly happy to find myself back here - not Tokyo, but another big city where I have yet another bunch of people that matter so much to me. Still on my travels, but I feel at home.
