Although I seem to have caught yet another cold and although I haven't slept more than four hours in each of the last three nights due to my nose being clogged, I had a really nice day today. Talked with friends and family this morning, which was nice and gave me warm fuzzies, then hopped the train to Kobe where I hung out with Jenny. We went hiking up into the hills and saw a spectacular waterfall. Unfortunately, we also saw a poor snake fighting to get out of the water. It didn't make it. :-( But we had fun anyway, and the struggle for survival was really poignant to watch (and no, we couldn't have helped, if we'd tried we'd probably have died, too). I bought a whole bunch of books for cheap, including a couple I've read before and want to read again. YAY, BOOKS!!!! Seriously, YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY BOOKS!!!
