I am sorry for the late post. This post is supposed to be written yesterday but I was too busy writing on my report and practicing guitar as well as making soup for a senior who was ill that I did not have enough time to write a post on the blog -- neither did I have enough sleep.
Yesterday was a happy, albeit the pile of homework waited to be done, a bit drizzly day. I was happy that I missed the campus bus so that I could walk home by my own. I bothered to stop by for a little while at the park near the river, enjoying the cool weather which I suppose will disappear in a blink of an eye since summer is coming really soon.
The river itself is called Hirose-gawa. The name of the river is Hirose and "gawa" is derived from a Japanese word "kawa" which means river. It flows 45 km through Sendai and is well-known as a symbol of Sendai. Lucky enough, I have to cross the bridge over that river every single time I go to the university.
To be honest, I don't go to that river so often but I have spent a couple of my days here in Sendai to do several different activities near the river. There was one time in autumn when I went to an Imoni party where people had some stew at the river side. There was some other time when I needed to go the river to shoot one of the scene of Festina's trailer. There were also times when I went there only because I wanted to feel the fresh air and the calming breeze; just like yesterday.
Hirose-gawa is a really nice place to relax, sometimes going there can release all the strains I got because of the university life and eventually I could get a grip of myself despite the tiresome academic burden. I know I will miss it some day in the future.
