Which? It was sunny, then it rained, really hard, then it got sunny again, then it rained again, finally it stopped!
Recently there have been hard raining squalls that have been renamed ‘guerrilla rain’ aptly named so because of the intensity and the suddenness of how it rains. Kind of freaky, but a little predictable as the late afternoon comes, the air suddenly gets cooler, winds pick up, then it rains. Worst case? Lightning, and/or hail!

Bamboo. These are thick, tall shoots that can be more than 30 cm in diameter, and probably close to 15m tall.

Even here. Even the river was hot, Well, not as cool as I might have thought. It was 34 degrees Celsius, but feels so much hotter because of the humidity. Tomorrow will be… probably the same!

20140725-083004-30604655.jpgBest 8. Today our tournament got us to the best 8 in Kanagawa prefecture. Which is a pretty good feat, and the farthest this team has gotten.

Summer Tournament. High School baseball has its highlight every summer with each prefecture sending ONE school to the national tournament in August. My school always is one of the seed schools for Kanagawa prefecture, but they often don’t seem to get far. Today they lost 4-3, bottom of the 11th, 2 outs, with a walk off single to left. In Japanese, it’s appropriately called a ‘sayonara-kachi’ (goodbye win? lol)
Well, maybe next year…..
