Summer has started, sort of. Before it really gets into gear we will have rainy season. Rainy season is something like a month of nearly unending rain. Certainly that’s not actually true, but it is definitely how it feels. Somehow I don’t think we’re quite into the thick of that yet either. Anyway, I hiked the one decent mountain trail in Hidaka again with some friends. I also checked out a couple books from the library that have somewhere around 100 hiking trails listed between them. I hope to start populating my flickr account with journeys to those mountains soon. I have started, but not done a very good job of continuing, a podcast series about Kochi. I hope to figure out an idea during the course of the week and publish episode three.
