Back to Australia!   


Hello Everyone!
Time for a Rocky update!
You may have not seen me for a while, and that's because I went back home to Australia for 5 weeks. My sister recently had another child, another little girl named Harriet (pictures below). I decided to surprise my sister by visiting, however my father ruined the surprise. I was wonderful to see my nieces, both are very cute but I feel I might be biased as a doting uncle.
I also had some of my friends from Sapporo visit me in Australia. They travelled Australia from Queensland to Alice Springs and saw many things that I've never actually visited. I really enjoyed showing them around, it was a reverse of when they showed me around Sapporo for the first time almost 4 years ago. We even went for a ride in a real Tank! It has always been a dream of mine to ride in a tank. Luckily my grandfather repairs military vehicles as a hobby so we got the grand tour of the workshop. I showed my friends the beauty of Australian beaches, and we swam in the ocean for almost 5 hours! I was so tired.
My Mother and Father were also very glad to see me. My Mother and I have always been very close so she really misses me, but she is glad I'm in Sapporo experiencing a different culture. My Father on the other hand gave me a list of computers that didn't know how to fix...and he also forgot how to fix the internet.
I returned to Japan at the end of May and spent a week exploring Tokyo with one of my friends from Australia. It almost felt like I was experiencing Japan for the first time again as I taught him some basic Japanese and helped him navigate the Tokyo subway system. It feels like only yesterday I was getting lost in Tokyo, desperately looking for the Ginza line. I didn't realise how confortable with Japan I had become. Even in Tokyo I felt at ease, and luckily I didn't forget my Japanese in the 5 weeks I was away.
Still; nothing felt better than coming back to Sapporo and finally getting settled in my bed again. Catching up with friends about what I had missed while I was gone and trying to organise all the bills I hadn't paid yet....oh dear. It's great to be back in Sapporo and I hope to see you all very soon!

Rocky (Australia)
