Our last full day here in Sapporo. Tomorrow, Lucy and I will say goodbye to Dk House and Sapporo. I will miss the city – it is a lovely place, full of exciting shops, malls and places to eat. However, I shall not miss walking on icy pavements and doing the balancing and skidding acts! I cannot believe that I spent 35 days here already. It was tough in the beginning, marking my calender daily. Then, as I got into skiing, Japanese classes, the days seemed to go by alot faster.
As the weather warmed up abit, the ice and snow on the roads turned to slush – like slurpy at 7-11 (for you Miss Danette!!) about a foot of it! Thenit gets watery and runs down the roa like a mini river. If we ar enot careful, we get splashed by fast moving cars – the brats enjoyed doing that, I swear!!
Shipped 11 suitcases, ski bags and boxes through Takkyubin yesterday and today. I wrote each piece of shipping label in Japanese – so proud of myself! The shipment will arrive in Aizu on Saturday.
