Home from a little trip:

今日は鎌倉に行きました。
今いるところから意外と近いんですよね。
行って帰ってくるのに500円もかかりませんでした。

We sort of went expecting to see lots of temples but ended up walking through a residential area, going to one shrine, taking a 2.1km hike, seeing the great Buddha statue and then walking back.
So, lots of walking.

一見は百聞に如かずなので以下が写真です:

北鎌倉駅、ホーム2つと改札口が一つしか無い小さなものでした。

神社にあった岩のテーブルの上で気持ち良さそうに寝てた猫。 ( http://xkcd.com/231/ はい、どっちかというと猫派です)

The great Buddha statue of Kamakura with its many visitors and

his giant slippers.

And this is the great status from the inside. (You can go inside for an additional 20JPY

A pretty long but relaxing day in general.
Work starts tomorrow again.
I should sleep earlier so I’m not tired tomorrow.
But I still need to clean my room…
I think I need a weekend of doing nothing but sorting out my domestic issues.
Maybe next week? (I cam be hopeful, right?)
