2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth

02-21 / “U” is for “Upside-down”

My backyard.Another of the wonderful things about this island is that there’s next to no pollution–there can be a bit of light pollution, but in general, the skies are crisp and clear, as is the air.  (In strong contrast to the other city I’ve lived abroad in–Beijing.)  I love being able to look outside, rightways or sideways or backways, and be able to see stars.  Brings back the latent astronomer in me–the kid who wanted to be an astronaut.  Also probably the one who still likes science fiction better than most other genres.  🙂
