Today we went to Otaru with Conrad and Yuki, then back in Sapporo we checked out the omiyage:
The little green balls are marimo, which is the spherical algae that grows in like only three places in the world. I was under the impression that you couldn't buy real marimo balls, but this shop had two types marked: "We are imitations." and the far more sinister "We live." pictured above. Then I finally, finally got to go on the Norbessa ferris wheel (Sapporo has a ferris wheel on top of a building of course). It was chilly but not too bad, and the view was awesome:
And that, plus lots and lots and lots of eating and drinking and singing and dancing was my awesome weekend that made me feel happy, lucky and tired. Good night!
