It’s pretty much Peak Tokyo here and I’m so busy I can hardly breathe. The only Japanese I’ve been doing is reading Yotsuba, no dictionary or anything, on the train to and from work. It’s fun seeing how much (and how little!) I understand but I do want to do some proper reading too. Hopefully tomorrow.
In the meantime… in this first chapter… can someone clear something up for me? On page 11 I thought Yotsuba didn’t have a souvenir to give to the people next door and her dad says never mind, just telling the story is enough, but then she leaves with a bag of snacks which she presents to the mum and which they later eat together. Where did I read wrong on page 11 regarding her dad’s comments?
