Maple leaves 2008 - Kyoto

I've been very busy these last few weeks, and therefore haven't had time to update my trip to Okinawa. So today, here is a series of pictures taken yesterday in Kyoto. We are right in the maple leaves season...

Okinawa 1 - Miyako

Okinawa 1 - Miyako

Most visitors of Okinawa make their first stop on the main archipelago. But since I knew what to expect and I didn't have much time on my hands, I skipped that part and went straight to Miyako, the central archipelago...

Moving

11/04/2008

The first part of my trip to Okinawa will be online very soon, but today I'll just give some news: my company is moving !

Oh, it's not going very far, we're still staying in the center of Nagoya and I'm pretty pleased with the new location. I was only ten minutes by bicycle from my workplace but from next month, it's going to be only five!

The reason is a bit sad though: my company's been having rentability problems for several months, they had to downsize and consequently the office has become way too large (and expensive). We hope to get a new start, but if things don't improve I'm afraid it won't last very long.

Besides, I have started to study Japanese again, but this time on private lessons. I have stopped improving for quite some time now and I still have trouble with advanced grammar and business Japanese.

I missed the registration to the proficiency test of december but it's not a big deal, as it is now going to be held twice a year.
