iamas arranged a very nice place for me to stay in. quite big and with a balcony.
the coffee machine just outside saved me a few times already.
the place (rist) is in central ogaki and it takes about 15min on the bike to go to iamas. but for me usually a lot longer - there are some many interesting things to stop and look at! and so many small and winding backstreets to explore. also i get lost now and then - often on purpose.
ogaki is perfect for biking around. i just need to concentrate to keep to the left side of the road.
another thing i seem to be unable to learn is that the water tap in my kitchen open downwards. so i need to pull it up to stop the water flow. hm. all these little habits you never notice.
