Last January, in the dead of winter, E and I spent one week in Hokkaido. It was a sort-of farewell trip before we left Japan for good.
It was about -20 degrees everyday and the entire city was blanketed in snow. Too cold to look fashionable, E convinced me to pack my track shoes (I would never wear them otherwise!) instead of my knee-high heeled leather boots. For some reason beyond me now, I also forgot to pack my contact lens solution and decided to go without make-up, so I spent the entire trip feeling like a frump. How the girls there can walk about in mini-skirts sans leggings I would never understand!
I took over a hundred photos but left them sitting in my memory card for ages and finally decided to look at them yesterday.
