Time to Relax
A couple of days off until another job on Friday. Really needed this rest. Just relaxing, surfing the net looking at pictures, reading news and…okay a little bit of research for the job on Friday… but mostly relaxing and having a few drinks with the wife.
Nothing quite says お疲れ様です Otsukaresama desu!) like a beer. Translation is difficult but this phrase is sort of a cross between “I/you/we have worked hard and very well” and “I’m out of here!” and is a common prelude to an alcoholic winding-down. As the salaryman in Shinjuku‘s Golden Gai above was intent on when I photographed him last night standing rigidly to attention while choosing a suitably character-ful bar in which to relax after work.
Enjoying my day a bit until the kids come home after school.
