Went to Shingu (a city close to Taiji) yesterday for some Indian food at the mall....later stopped by the grocery store. Interesting to walk around trying to make out what some of the foods are. Came across what looked like dove birds?
*This morning, when I bought my coffee, the lady at the train station was very nice...even telling me that I was not dressed warm enough...told her that I was Canadian, so it was OK. Maybe she just had to get to know me a little better. As I was saying before, many people here do initially put their guard up with foreigners.
