Purple skies of Nagoya

Today has been the coolest day this week and since the weekend is starting for many, hopefully the air will be less purple than it was today. I wonder how the air quality has been affected with a year of less than clean energy and Toyota recently running gasoline generators to stay off the overloaded grids.

Looking a little eerie!


Summer is late

Summer’s are generally smoldering around most of Japan, but this year after a small heat spell, it has been cooler than usual. The rainy season has been on and off and started later this year than any other since I’ve been here and I quite like this coolness. After a few days of 30 degree Celsius weather, this mid twenties weather has given me energy to do more than laze around the apartment.
