At intersections on the road, you use these mirrors when you need to see if any cars are coming from the other directions. Here is another angle, and you can see me in this one, I think. They're actually really great once you get used to looking for cars in them, rather than turning your head back and forth, especially when there are high hedges right at a corner, which there are a lot of here.
A neighboring house, my neighbors farm one and two, which I run past every day, and a view of the farmer's house itself.
This road leads to my apartment complex. I run down it, cross the road, run past this house, and down this wooded trail. Inside the woods, there is this shrine, and people leave money and little trinkets on it like this (which I did for you Amber) and here is another view of the shrine as well.
Oh, a picture through a gap in my neighbor's wall.
Ah, the cemetary which is next door to my apartment complex, and another view of it.
A picture of some bamboo growing in one section of my running trail.
My friend Beth's website, which has or will have some pics from our Tokyo Disney trip on it.
Okay, that's it for now. I'll start taking pictures of people and other places now that I've gotten some of the immediate vicinity of where I live done.
Also, I realize now after posting this once that I didn't link the pics correctly. I'm too tired to go back and feed them into the text, so please accept this messier version.
