What a great occasion for people of all ages. It was well-organised, and there were perfect weather conditions, and so many people.
I hadn’t been to Roggen Meyer since my bad experience there in April, when I was served by a waitress who was not interested in the products.
I looked for a baguette but there were none on display, so I asked a shop worker and she checked for me. She politely asked me to wait a few minutes because some more baguettes had nearly finished baking.
And sure enough I saw the oven open and a lot of fresh baguettes on a tray. The shop worker picked up a baguette with some tongs, let it cool a little, and slipped it straight into a long bag. Then she took it to the cashier.
To my surprise the cashier was one of my students. She spoke to me in very good English and at 4.03pm I had the baguette. Roggen Meyer’s service is much better now.
I went straight to the platform to catch my train at 4.06, and I arrived at my station at 4.10, and got home at 4.17
At 4.20 I was eating the baguette, about 20 minutes after it came out of the oven!
Shizuoka City is the capital of Shizuoka prefecture. I think there are quite a few cities which have the same name as the prefecture.
Is there a city with the same name as the prefecture which is not the capital?
Can anybody tell me the names of a well-known town and a well-known village in Japan?
I thought when I first started this blog in September 2006 that I might get 2 or 3,000 hits in a year, and I would be happy.
In the next few days the number of hits will be more than 10,000, a number I never imagined.
So a big thank you to all viewers. Some of my students will now finish my course, since it is a one semester course only. If you wish, please continue to read the blog and to write comments.
When I last saw some blue sky there were strawberries in every foodstore, azaleas were in full bloom and Blair was the UK Prime Minister!
It’s been a long time.
Friday 13th is considered an unlucky day by many people, and fear of Friday 13th is known as paraskevidekatriaphobia. Was today lucky or unlucky for you, or just another ordinary day?
The last time we had Friday 13th was in October 2006, and I wrote a post about this unlucky day, please read it here.
