For better or for worse, in my constant pursuit of a bank account, I am now living in a sharehouse in Osaka. I have a cute, air conditioned, Japanese style tatami-ed room, complete with western style single bed. I have a desk, chair and lamp for Warren sitting in one corner facing the window, and a black leather arm chair for me to curl up in with a book, in the other. Outside it has just started to rain, which should take the edge off the heat. It is a room that I believe I will be quite content in, and seeing as I am contracted into a minimum of 3 month stay, this is a very good thing.
