I can't believe how soon this semester is going to be over! I guess time flies when you are having fun!
Holy cow, it rained a lot this past weekend. I'm leaving soon, so I am trying to visit all the places I think I should see before I go back to Canada. This last weekend was my weekend to go up Osaka Tower. It was really cool. There was a strange god at the top of the tower . . . Billiken. I'm not sure if he was a real god or not though. I thought maybe he might be a god just for the tourists. I wonder if people really pray to him. I did see lots of people throwing money into the box infront of him.
He's pretty scary looking, isn't he? Anyway, when I was up at the top of Osaka Tower, I saw a kind of park, and my friends told me it was Tennoji Zoo. I had never been there, so we all decided to go to the zoo after the tower. It was pouring with rain, but we still went. The animals looked a little bit sad in the rain, and I hated the cages that the monkeys were in. I felt really bad for them, because it was like a prison for monkeys, and they have never done anything wrong. I wish they could have had bigger cages. It's cruel. The penguins were okay though. They had a nice big enclosure, and they looked pretty happy swimming in their pool, but then again, I don't think it takes much to make a penguin happy . . .
Finally, I ate kushiage . . . it was so good. All you can eat for under 2000 yen! Yum!
