There are some annual events according to the calendar. Today is EEL-Eating Day in Japan. Eel sales is at the peak throughout Japan. People eat eel bowl-a bowl of rice topped with broiled eel basted with a sweet soy sauce to gain strength in mid-summer.
At the supermarket a lot of broiled eels were sold.
And cicadas started buzzing near my house yesterday. Buzzing of cicadas is rather annoying, but it's a really summer thing. I have long been wondering why cicadas begin singing(?) all of sudden, when schools go on summer vacation.
