I'll begin on Sunday. It was a nice day. Really warm. The sun had shone strong through the day. Before I left for my walk with Samjin I brought the plants to the roof for some of the goodness.
At the foot path by the river some of the small cherry blossoms started to bloom. There was another person next to me taking this same picture.
I made my way down to the river which is running quite dry. At certain points you can walk right across it on its gravel floor. With the water washed out I saw all these large rusted anchor type things on the river bed. I guessed they were to deterrents to boaters. What do you make of it?
So I did the loop and walked further down the river by the bamboo thicket. Across the river at this point was a partially collapsed rock wall.
I headed back up into the streets at the bungee jump platform that hangs over a cesspool. Walked past the damn and headed home after a couple hours on foot. The sun was getting low, and the plants don't do well in low heat so I got home and took them down. Ana got back from soccer and we met some friends at Zio Ricco's for some pizza pies. They serve dark Belgian beer here so I got one.
There were also some jolly fat Italians juggling wine bottles next to me:
A couple nights ago we had an Apartment sale. Got a knock and in came ten shoppers. This is what John got. John is letting us live in his suite for the remainder of our time here. He's holding our beloved and mysterious herb plant. It was vibrant and full, and then our dog was spiteful and attacked it last week.
So thats been the deal. The rest has been a pretty crappy fight with our management. We worked hard for them, and actually cared about the success of their business, and we get treated like dogs.
