I had gathered my coat, scarf, and bag before stumbling out into the cold Chiba night. It was only 6:30 but the haze of the early party swirled in my head. The air felt so refreshing after inhaling other peoples smoke for the last 2 hours. I walked the familiar streets back to the station, pausing a few times to see some lights that caught my eye.
The lights just come alive at night. Even though at times so much light pours onto the streets that becomes a artificial fluorescent day.
I kind of like it a bit when the darkness comes so early, but I look forward to those long summer days that aren’t to far away.
