On the last day Minke and Eelco are spending with us in Japan, they finally visited my little apartment. We hadn’t had the time so far because of all the busy sightseeing, but we managed to squeeze it in today.
And we also managed to squeeze the four of us in my apartment. The grand tour of was over in a minute, and even though they agreed it was small, they thought it was livable and cute. Most of their time in my shoebox was spent unwrapping gifts they brought from home. My mom had sent Minke many packages by post to bring to Japan and Minke and Eelco also brought their own gifts to make us happy with. The most remarkable one being a Jon Bon Jovi action figure... Not sure what to do with that, but it’s interesting.
It was fun showing Minke and Eelco how I live and the places where I shop or have dinner. The only thing I forgot to show them were my neighbor’s washing machines on the street. I had told them about it earlier in the week and they couldn’t believe that people did their laundry on the street before their house. I still can’t believe it either.
