Days 2262 – 2268

Day 2262 ( Cycling to Work /Stolen Fire Hoses?!?)
Thursday, May 29, 2014
Rode to work today and it took like 7 minutes. So my complaining about the distance to work was for nothing…. I’m guessing that in snow, it will probably take a maximum or 30 mins.
Also bought a helmet
just because the students wear helmets and I want to set an example. I bought the helmet at a mall just by my apartment. An expensive “green” mall. You have to pay extra for plastic bags.
The crimes in Japan never ceases to amaze me!

Day 2263 ( Tennis Practice / 291 Heat Stroke Victims Already!! )
Friday, May 30, 2014
Downloaded a scanning app today, just to avoid using the school’s fax machine to fax my reports to Tokyo. What I did instead is scan it with my phone then email.
I rode to school this morning with the new helmet. And apparently I am driving a good portion of these Junior High School girls crazy... oh boy.
I saw this car with a Jamaican flag on it very close to my apartment.
Later on I played tennis
with my Jamaican friend and some others. I think the last time I played tennis was probably back in 1995. I honestly can’t recall playing tennis anytime between then and today. Almost 19 years. I surprised myself though….Wasn’t too bad at all.
291 taken to hospital for heatstroke in one week
Day 2264 ( Toyama Sanno Festival Day 1/ Researches searches for the perfect Nipple ! )
Saturday, May 31, 2014
Had a special meeting today. Rode in the sun for 25 minutes to the meeting location. This maps app on the iphone is absolutely genius. I hated it at first but now it's like magic.
Later I had some kind of Nigerian stew.
The taste is very similar to something we have in Jamaica call stew peas.
Also went to a yearly 3 days festival in Toyama known as Sanno festival. I will be going there tomorrow and the day after as well.

Day 2265 ( Toyama Sanno Festival Day 2)
Sunday, June 1, 2014
Rode to the festival… Took about 15 mins from my apartment to get there. Met up with 2 of my other Jamaican friends in the area. Check out the pics:

No classes today.
Went to the final day/night of the sanno festival. Did you notice some of the photos from yesterday? They were taken by another Jamaican who is right here in Toyama. Michael Mighty aka Big Mike has been doing photography since 2011. Check out some of his work....

Day 2267 ( )
Tuesday, June 3, 2014
Played football with the students after work today. But stopped for the last final 45 mins to deal with some issues concerning my apartment in Yokohama. They didn't even play a match of any sort. Just passing and running around.
Day 2268 ( )
Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Ok so …. Started this new job as a trainer since April. Still haven’t seen the positives about it yet. Especially financially. I’m in Toyama now, spent quite a bit of money while I’m here and yet to get back a cent. I’m pretty sure that I’m gonna get it back but the process is taking too long. And I’m running low, as I’m still suffering from my part-time runnings last school year. I've not fully recovered yet. I do have my "just in case" savings that I refuse to touch, simply because it's a "just in case" savings. I trust that everything will all come together though.
