Difference Between Scotland and Japan

I would sometimes read a blog from a Japanese woman who lives in Scotland. She once wrote a blog on how to boiled an g in Scotland.

But her husband and her mother-in-low would put it straight in the boiling hot water without cracking it first. I don’t know which is right. She also mentioned how to eat csereal.

How many people are playing Pokemon Go in the Syukugawa area? Usually, there are a few passers who would pass by the neighborhood of my house. But recently ,because Takatuka park is a Poke Stop, l see various people walking around there more often now. I saw two old ladies who were wondering where they should go with their iPad in hand. Another time I saw a sports car stopped as the driver dashed out immediately to collect poke balls. I might have to tell them to be careful not to get into any accidents.

Summer Sweets

I like walking around strange places. Last Monday, I went to the Iwasimizu Hatimann shurine. It was on the top of the hill. I walked about an hour and a half. It was a hot day. I needed to take a rest from the long walk so I stopped by a Japanese traditional style cafe that sold some sweets and tea. The kuzumoti sweets were nice. It had no flavor but I enjoyed the texture of it when it touches the top of my mouse.
