Tuesday, 29 June 2021 – The greenery was quietly melting into the moist air and grey sky in the rainy season

Good evening from Tokyo, where the second time Semi-emergency Spread Prevention Measures have been applied.
Day 9.

Today was a cloudy day with a heavy atmosphere in the air. In the night it rained very hard. No rain now. In the early evening, just before it became dark, I went for a short walk on the way to post the letter. The greenery was quietly melting into the moist air and grey sky in the rainy season. The hydrangeas will soon finish their flower season. However, for now I can still taste and enjoy the beautiful colours of their flowers.

Yesterday I received my first Pfizer’s vaccination. I had no idea what kind of adverse reactions would appear in my body. So today I spent the whole day relaxing and resting. I got the vaccine in my left shoulder. I felt a slightly heavy feeling there. It was similar to muscle pain. But the feeling was gone 24 hours after the vaccination. Almost nothing happened. It is said that adverse reactions are more likely to appear after the second shot than after the first. My next vaccination will be 3 weeks later. Now it is most important for me that my vaccinations will finish before the Olympics start.

The latest and most impartial video report about the Tokyo Olympics is given by the BBC. It has become very popular trend on Japanese social media. I highly recommend it.

Good night. Have a nice dream.

Wear a mask and wash your hands.
