The kindness of (elderly) strangers.

I got caught in some heavy rain today while running errands. The weather had been fine when I left, so I had no umbrella, and I was getting really soaked. While waiting for a crossing signal, a little old lady spotted me and hurried over to share her umbrella. I thanked her, but noted that she was getting wet now and that I was just going to the Ito Yokado ahead of us. I hurried ahead once the light changed, thanking her as I left.

I think I’ll stay in Japan a while longer.
