I realize my last post promised an end to my China saga. Unfortunately when I went to post that at the end of the year, a crash ate most of the post. I currently still have the opening third but end-of-year busyness, new year's busyness, and general disappointment of losing the post in the first place has lead me to writing this short instead. I promise to get something on China up at a later date, but I figured not having a new post this far into 2010 was not good.
So instead of ruminating on China, I'm going to wish everyone a Happy New Year and get a bit nostalgic about Canadian winter. As someone who never lived farther than a 30 minute walk from any school or job site, snow was never a big problem for me. Sure I'd complain about slush and wet socks like everyone else, but I enjoyed the silence and brightness brought on by a heavy snowfall. There's a peacefulness brought on by snow that I miss and haven't been able to experience here in Tokyo. Instead I've been forced to look over some old photos of Canadian winter. So to that end, I point you all to this post I made almost two years ago, aptly titled "Behold!!! Canadian Winter!"Behold!!! Canadian Winter!
