Today the sun came out but the humidity didn't subside much, so it was unbelievably hot and muggy. It was too hot to ride, so I spent most of the day doing housework, writing and studying Japanese.

When I went out to a nearby stationary store in the middle of the day, the heat immediately forced me back inside. I picked up some pens and the paper that school children use to practice their Kanji. The pens come in many sizes but they go down to very fine tips so that one can fit the Kanji into normal lined paper. That's still a bit too advanced for me.

Since I didn't do much of interest, I'll just post some pictures of two of the Canals near my place. Osaka is built on a delta, so there are canals and rivers throughout the city.
