this morning after midnight snacking a bag of pistachios and pumpkin soup i had the energy to climb mt Fuji, i could see it on the map, couldnt be to far . - so i hoped on my new pal the no geared rather litlle bicycle, and journenyd outwards. - (with my christmas eye making my head turns at every street,sight, - ( cute man holes! - (post those another day- potenital art inspiration in those.) . asked about, and some how managed to get roads mixed up , ( : - 3hours, still no mountain, - two lovley desk ladies at a rest home in the middle of orchard jungels, giggled in amused japense at my attempt to bike. - 50more kilometers up hills.! they let me leave with direcctions, a bottle of cold tea and honey sweets- so i headed homewards .. . so i thought, heading in all sorts of directions, - never to worried about being lost. only about being to tired (this didnt happen, potenitaly due to there delicious 1dollar iced coffees they sell on vending machines on everycorrner) I encountered the prefectural museum . So i went inside.. were i got given a free english tour guide! . she was an intersting charachter, in the shape o a velcro life jacket, equipt with sound control, replay and a sensor that triggered a voice at everydisplay. - at least i could understand her. i learnt about the agriculture, some beautiul art, and took with me a whole heap of pamphlets that will keep the memory a little longer. - finally -getting close to 3pm an elderman lead me the way back to central Kofu, and i found AIRY.
