Last winter I chickened out and got out of Kyoto a few times with stops in the USA, Cairo, and Malaysia. This winter, I am being brave and staying here the whole winter. It will be my first complete winter in years and years!
All of my apartment windows are opaque, so I don’t see the weather until I open the door to check. This morning I got a nice surprise and a fun ride to the lab. Yay for snow!
