It is beginning to sink in I am leaving. After a wonderful day yesterday spent at Biwako (Lake Biwa, 2 hours north east of Osaka) with most of the usual suspects, I felt sad knowing that not only was that the last chance for us all to have a day in the sun out of Osaka before the winter weather sets in, it was also the last time I will do something like that with my mates here in Osaka.
The event was called Indian Summer and I think was organised by Wil of Mad Kafe - basically a bunch of DJs from Osaka, drinks and water sports - although I don't think any of the Indian Summer folk jet-skied (most of us got into the trampoline that was there though!). Just sitting on the grass, drinking san gria (kudos to Wil for such awesome san gria), listening to music and chatting. Or playing cards....someone bought the deck out and we found ourselves entrenced by Asshole for a couple of hours.
Anyway, I realised once again I am leaving something I know and love for the unknown. Everyone was asking me about what I am going to do back in Melbourne, and the truth is I have no idea. I really don't. After all this time I still can't figure it out. I'm not sure if I can always live life so blindly in such an oblivious manner. 7 weeks to go, but who is counting?
