Today (Tuesday 29th) was the first official holiday of the Japanese “Golden Week”. This is almost the only time of the year in Japan (well at least Tokyo) when the weather is neither cold and rainy, nor hot and humid, i.e. very nice. There are usually 3 holidays in the week, but this year, the 2nd holiday will fall on a Saturday.
Since I live quite close to Yoyogi park, I went there with some friends, instead of trying to fix my shiny new kernel (more on that later).
We stayed there until evening playing football (“soccer” for some of you) and various other games. It was a nice mix of foreigners and Italian speaking Japanese so got to practice a little bit of both languages.
