Woke up at half three just to see the Netherlands lose against Spain in the grand finals of soccer. The decisive goal in the 116th minute. I will probably hear something like “zannen” (too bad) when I go to school. And what is with nine yellow cards anyway. Obviously I went to bed straight afterwards at 6 AM. Want to go gaming at Naohide’s at 1 PM so I would like to be awake by then.

Seven in the morning. 7:30. And I am all alone at home. Everyone is still asleep. I felt lost because I already had to go in forty minutes. Even though I did not want to, I woke up my mother. She says she does not mind but I rather do. She explained to me what to do in such situations. It might come in handy in similar situation at home in the Netherlands…But they do not have a luxurious cafeteria there like they have here in Japanese schools.

Unlike in anime, I do not hear a single cicada here while it is summer. Maybe it is because I am in heavy populated city. It is pretty quiet here, with not so many bugs. I have seen bugs though, and those are really larger than the ones I usually see in the Netherlands. About cicadae, note that I am talking about the ‘higurashi’ cicada found in Japan. As by now I already got used to the usual cicada, the so-called ‘kumazemi’ cicada.

I’m getting tired really fast these last days. I do no longer believe it is because of jetlag, but because I get less caffeine here than in the Netherlands. It is obviously always tea time here. To be honest, I do not really like the taste of it yet. I am thinking of daily buying some soft drink at school. I guess I really like sweet stuff.

From here on, I think there will be a bit less writing because a daily routine has been formed. The reason I am saying that is because the school festival starts the day after tomorrow. I cannot wait to see it. I will probably record some videos as well. Do take notice that these videos need some time to be processed.

It is currently 7:00 AM in the morning. In the end, I could not sleep that much, so I assume that it will have an effect later on. Somehow the plans for today were a bit changed. Instead of Tokyo, we are now going to Kyoto, as it’s more nearby. The morning started off with a lot of… vegetables. But I have to endure. Packed up with both my photo camera and video camera, I left for Neyagawa Station (Keihan Neyagawa-shi Eki).

Let me tell you one thing: It is really hot, but not only that. It is also rainy; it just happens to be rainy season in Japan right now. I am actually writing this while I have to wake up in 5 hours but I am not sleepy at the moment. Of course you want to know how I safely arrived here in Osaka, and I will gladly share it with you readers out there.
