I begin bicycling down the street I live on. This is "the hood." There are a few families with young children. I can hear and see children playing in the evenings and on the weekends.
|It is a good neighborhood.|
|Anybody able to read this Kanji?|
|It's wooded and also has some open space. This was taken on Saturday, not on a weekday morning.|
I also ride down the Suido-doro. This is a road that goes along a canal that was built to bring water to the farmers, a long time ago.
|This is the actual canal. I have seen fish in it.|
|There are fish in here also, but you can see how they control the erosion.|
|Today there was soccer.|
|Here they are bending down reaching for their toes.|
|Some close-ups of some of the participants in Higashi Kurume.|
|Hana and I walking along the river path. Don't you see that smile on her face?|
