my new car!

check out my new ride! it's a Suzuki WagonR. The "R", obviously, stands for recreation. It's a kei car, meaning it has a small engine, uses less gas, and I pay less car taxes. Also, it has only 3 doors, for no particular reason. I went to Yokote, a nearby city in Akita that's a bit bigger than Honjo, this weekend to pick it up, where I also partook in the Akita Museum of Modern Art. They had a couple of interesting pieces, although the museum is housed in a weird and very poorly designed building. Also, did anyone witness the moon halo phenomenon happening the other night? Because I did, and it was pretty cool.

That's a very nice car Sophie but please be careful driving on the 'wrong' side of the road.
