summer in the city

Well we're finally hitting my least favorite season in Japan; summer.

It's not so bad yet. The days are pretty hot, but going out in the evenings are great, a little bit breezy and warm. My friend and I were walking around Shiodome last night and it was great weather. By the time august comes around, it's just unpleasant all the time.

But coming back to the apartment, it was just hot. The japanese roommate who doesn't sweat was shirtless reading at the table. I don't want to use the air conditioner. Actually last summer and all winter, we almost never used it. But I've got Nordic blood in me, and I just don't tolerate lots of sun and heat very well (the beach is a nightmare, I have a choice of pasty white or lobster red). Turned it on just long enough to cool down my 'room' before I went to bed. It's getting to be that time of year, and I'm going to be uncomfortable pretty much until September now. Oh well, it's only two months I guess
