Ueno zoo (part 1)/Le zoo de Ueno (première partie)

Posted on 2/23/2008 by Eric Jobin

Friday was a really nice day so I decided to go to work on Saturday instead. And off we went to Ueno zoo. That zoo is huge, we only had time to see half of it in about 4 hours. We will have to return and see the rest.

Saturday, no training with Nagato Sensei. I was in my way to the train station, braving the crazy winds that was raging in Kashiwa. Once at the station I couldn't but notice that there were more people than usual. People standing inside and outside the gates, crazy line up to the ticket machines. I decided to go in anyways... but after 3 trains that should have pass and didn't show up, I decided to turn around. A quick stop to the 100 yen store to get some chocolat treats before getting home and drinking some cheap Bin 444 wine.

Vendredi etait une très belle journée, j'ai donc décidé de travaillé samedi à la place. Et nous sommes allé au zoo de Ueno. Ce zoo est énorme, nous n,avons eu le temps que d'en visiter la moitier en 4 heures. Nous devrons y retourner pour voir le reste.

Samedi, pas d'entrainement avec nagato Sensei. J'étais sur le chemin pour la station de train, combattant les vents incroyable qui fesait rage à Kashiwa. Une fois à la station je n'ai pus que remarquer le nombre inhabituel de personnes qui y était présente. Ils y avait des gens autant à l'intérieur qu'a l'extérieur des portes, un tres long "line up" pour les machines à billets. J'ai quand même décider d'y aller... mais après 3 trains qui ne sont pas passé, j'ai décidé de m'en retourner. Un petit arrêt au magazin 100 yen pour m'acheter quelques gourmandises au chocolat avant de retourner à la maison et boire un peu de Bin 444 acheté pas cher.
