It was my birthday three months ago. I still remember it like it was 90 days ago. I went to an onsen in Sakunami. There was an outdoor onsen. It was snowy so I stayed in the water for a long time. I also enjoyed the babbling brook next to the warm sulfuric pools of tepid water. It was fun. I will go to another onsen the end of this month. It is in Aone. The onsen is advertised in Berry Magazine. I like chocolate. There is always a delicious looking cake on the cover of Berry Magazine. One time when I was in band camp, I ate too much chocolate cake. I felt really bad and had to ly down. It was awful. I wish there had been an onsen there. I would have been wonderful to soak away my pain./Sendai Study Advisor Richard
