The rainy season has just started in my hometown. We had been concerned about the little rainfall for the past few months. That's why we are now relieved, while feeling sorry for the victims of eastern Japan. A vast area of eastern Japan has been suffering from the ground sinking after the quake and heavy rainfall would be painful for the victims.
By the way, the general meeting of the Matsuyama-Freiburg association was held today and the clean-up of Freiburg Street was scheduled at first, but it was put off due to the heavy rain. The members got together at a coffee shop along the street and enjoyed chatting. As I heard various stories of trips to Europe, I got eager to travel abroad.
