This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Winter! The first December birds

Suddenly the winter came. Brr, I'm cold. Alishan is a cozy home, but when the temperature of the seawater drops the floor gets so cold... Better go out to see some wings 'n things'

突然冬が来ました 寒い!
Alishan は 居心地のよいい家ですけど

During the WBSJ birdwatchers meeting some wings flew in... seemingly to watch us!
