Finally, I am officially in summer break! :)
currently having sore neck and shoulder because of the fireworks festival yesterday, where I was watching up to the sky while taking pictures or videos for 1.5 hours straight.
alright, I will blog about what happened in my life last week!
I spent previous week mostly meeting friends to say goodbyes before they left Japan (for good or not) and of course studying for the exams and writing essay!
Monday, July 23
Spent the day at the library starting my essay. Then meeting up with mimint and wz (not real names lol) for mexican dinner at Yotsuya, their favorite restaurant! and it was sort of farewell dinner too since the couple is going to Europe for graduate school this September.
|The restaurant has cozy south american atmosphere|
|really yum chicken soup|
|I love this enchiladas :D|
|group picture. we will definitely meet again someday!|
Tuesday - Friday, July 24 - 27
Since I almost took no pictures on these days, I don't remember what exactly I was doing -.-
Most likely I spent those days going to my last classes, staying at the library finishing my last essay and I also went drinking once to a bar nearby.
Then had a haircut on Friday, got half of my hair cut. Kinda sad, but I feel so much fresher and happier now. I'm ready for the midsummer hotness :D
Saturday, July 28
Met up with Ohia for lunch at Takadanobaba, we went to take purikura first before our quite fancy lunch at Cotton Club, Italian Cafe near the station.
|My cheek is very elastic|
|Pasta, It was good and a lot. I couldn't finish it (especially coz it was oily)|
We were catching up for hours and Ohia was gonna go back to Korea the next day, only for a week though :D
After the lunch we parted and I went to Asakusa for the famous Sumidagawa fireworks festival.
Before heading to a nice spot to watch the hanabi, I went to the Sensouji temple first to pray and picked the omikuji.
|This is the best Omikuji I've ever got :)|
|So many people, couples and yukatas|
|Some people are "picnicking" while waiting for the fireworks to start|
2.000.000 fireworks, 1.5 hours, approx 900.000 people went to watch.
It was the best fireworks I've ever seen in my life.
I'm going to post more details and video about the festival, soon on my project blog
here is the link of more the video
and I am going for Summer camp outside Tokyo tomorrow for 4 days! See you after that!
