Seasonal Almanac

Start of autumn: white dew descends (5 of 5)

February 14th, 2009

Start of autumn 10 of 15A Japanese student, Erina Sato, from Dokkyo University in Saitama Prefecture, Japan, is staying with us for a few weeks while doing an English course at the university here in Wollongong.

Erina showed us where she lives with her family on googlemap and where she goes to university (a 2 hour journey standing up one-way!). I then showed her where we stayed in Takadanobaba, routes of our river walks in Tokyo, and our adventures in western hills. As I travelled around the googlemap, I suddenly realised how much I missed those three months in Japan.

Having been in Australia for a week already, Erina has been introduced to all type of foods available here in Australia: ham sandwiches, India curry, Aussie home-made burger, pizza, sausage sizzle…. So for a bit of a change, we had a bit of rice, miso soup, and tempura.
