Some cross-cultural observations from Japan and the UK.

Is rainy season over already? It`s 35 degrees most days and very humid. Government officials are warning people to stay out of the burning sun. Apparently this weather is a ripple of the heat wave the USA is suffering at the moment. Here`s a notice that just went up in the subway. Subways generally provide free water fountains on the platforms for customers. I often used them until recently when I saw an ojisan rinse his mouth out and then spit the water back into the fountain.
