The Silver Lady


Zoomed in on an abandoned (or maybe just a badly kept) car in the parking lot the other day. I went to get a better look and saw that it was a Rolls Royce.

Like I've said before, I'm not very into cars. But even I know that this hood ornament. The Spirit of Ecstasy.



We are heading into our Golden Week here in Japan. It is a period when we have consecutive holidays so basically we get almost a week off. This year, if you take a day off this friday, you can have a full 7 days of vacation. Some people even take thursday and friday off next week and enjoy 11 days of vacation.

I don't know how people can go back to work after taking such a long break. But I'm looking forward to my 5 days of Golden Week and feel just like the silver lady. Feeling the breeze and ready to take flight!

That RR™ looks like it might be beyond a soap and water fix, but who knows? This really got me movin’ and groovin’.

May you have a veritable Rolls Royce of a Golden Week, Kaori. Me? Like always, I think I’ll have me a mighty fine Olden Week. Ha ha.

You live in the Land of Abandoned Rolls Royces!
We call the days you need to complete these holidays 'ponti' (bridges) and usually they are days of crazy traffic up and down Italy, with people reconnecting to families or traveling for fun...

It's too bad the Spirit of Ecstasy looks less than ecstactic!

«Louis» hopes you have an (ahem) ecstatic vacation!
