My new best friend
My cute little bicycle. I picked it for it's creamy, buttery color that reminds me of custard and cupcakes. It's a typical Japanese city bike, with a basket that's perfect for shopping, and it locks up on the back wheel. I hate leaving it outside at night, and I've missed it all day. I rode it around Marugame all night last night, picking up sweets along the way, and discovering more of my town. I actually purchased the bicycle at the supermarket, and got it registered in case of theft. I'm thankful I ran into my friend who speaks fluent Japanese, he helped me set up all the paperwork... and the bike was mine! My lovely friend Isabel has the same bicycle, but in blue. I'm just so happy to be able to ride it around and see more of Marugame and discover nice little places... I love my bike... and Marugame is my oyster.
