Thursday, 27th September, 2018. 

We exchanged contract / money today for B6 ! 

The biggest amount I've ever spent in my life .....  super hyped about it. 

My Starz for this very day, courtesy of Oscar Cainer are: 

the aftermath of the powerful Full Moon brings a change in your mood. A glow of inner self-confidence is about to materialise from behind a cloud of worry that has been obscuring the joy in our world. Although the problem won't disappear as quickly as the morning dew, you'll be able to see the glistening of hope, and a way to make progress. Perhaps a looming deadline will disappear, or you'll see how to accomplish a task. This glimmer of brightness has the power to affect how you feel about everything.

September Starz

of the 
8th and 9th September, 2018

Oscar Cainer's prediction for Cancerians: 

Your Week Ahead -  Love Focus:  Do you feel as if life has become repetitive?  Are you feeling dizzy and frustrated by the dramas you're entangled in ? Would you prefer your world to be less of a melodramatic soap and more of a grand love-story?  Do you fear that this may never happen because of a key person's unreasonable actions have made your relationship stressed and fraught?  As Venus changes signs, it brings something of a renaissance. You have a chance to do things in a different way, with positive and unexpected results. 



September starts with me being in Fukushima .....

My third visit this year, my fifth within the last year. 

Ate noodles at a noodle bar in the main street of Fukushima City. 
Nowhere near as good as it previously was, plus more expensive. 
I went there twice to double-check; won't be going there anymore.

Shisa from Okinawa - so cool, eh ? 

Ah, the painting. 

Some air plants, which I have always thought of as being wonderful. 

I took the highway bus to Sendai on Saturday, 1st September. 
Might be the first day of Spring in Brisbane however it was raining
steadily in Sendai City. 

By coincidence, I bumped into Father Lee in Yodabashi Camera ! 
He's moving to Tokyo soon.   Great to see him again. 

 Delicious food was served to me ....thank you. 

Another air plant known as Grandfather's Beard. 

Driving across the Matsukawa Bridge in Fukushima City. 

On Monday, 3rd September, 2018  I took the local train
to Koriyama City. 

Tuesday, 4th September was another rainy-type day
although a little humid. 

Traveled to a Nashi farm. 

Lunch at a popular restaurant in Minami Fukushima City. 

A trip to Tsuchiyu; haven't been there for such a long time. 

From Room # 1101  APA  Hotel, Fukushima Station
West Side at about 6.45 am in the morning
of Thursday, 06th September. 

A Waraji Display at Fukushima Station.

Time to leave Fukushima bound for Brisbane City. 

Bicycle Parking; East Side of Fukushima Station. 

A quick stop in Koriyama heading for Ueno Station.

From Ueno Station I took the Skyliner to Narita. 

Above:  View from the Soba Restaurant in Narita Airport
where I ate a very late lunch / early dinner. 

Tasted fine for 'fast food' . 

Qantas Flight QF62 was 2 hours late leaving Narita for the 
overnight flight back to Brisbane.  It was a long wait 
in the airport, that's for sure. 

The plane arrived about 90 minutes past its scheduled arrival time
however it didn't matter so much to me. 
Strange feeling to be back in Australia .... as it always is.
