The weather has been wonderful for the past couple of weeks. It's warm and breezy, and perfect to be outside most of the time. I know that rainy season (tsuyu) is only a few weeks away and after that the terrible heat and humidity of summer, but for now I'm enjoying all the time I can outside.
There's a little park near our apartment that has lovely flowers all year round (the winter cabbages and camellias are both from here) but it has suddenly exploded into a gorgeous rose garden.
I found a really fantastic kiwi popsicle at the 7-Eleven. The outside is like a regular fruit popsicle, but the inside is a crunchier icy texture more like a snow cone. It also comes in the blue flavor "Soda" and the super gross "Corn Potage" flavor. (What is Japan's obsession with corn potage?)
Speaking on 7-Eleven snacks, I found some passion fruit flavored kitkats earlier this week. They smelled nice but tasted a little strange. I'm not the biggest passion fruit fan to begin with though, so they're probably great if you are a fan. The coating seemed to melt just a little faster than the chocolate does.
Besides enjoying the weather I've been getting a lot of writing done. One day Raku and I were in Omotesando writing outside at the fancy Starbucks, but also having a great time people watching. At one point a lady walked by with seven little fluffy dogs that were all the same size and color.

Then later out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a big animal walking down the street. When I looked up there was a man with a donkey selling flowers.
