I am ready for the weekend lol. Not sure why, but I am just super tired this week. I wasn't able to workout during my lunch break today, so I'm going to have to do it tomorrow. Just needed to get a little rest in. I think it's probably due to the rain and it being darker outside lately. Was looking at some old photos and I found one of a manhole cover in Kumagaya that I never posted. Japan has so many cool designs on manholes, that there's actually quite a few people who go out of there way to take photos of them when they visit Japan. It's one of those unique things that you don't find in other countries and it's really neat. I like this one because it represents what Kumagaya is - a rugby town. I'd like to go back and visit again as it seemed like a really nice place. I don't know if I'd be able to play rugby at this point, but I'd definitely like to watch a game if I get the chance.
