Bikes in Kyoto

Today we bought used bikes! It was exciting trying to communicate using our phrase book. They new some english so, with our forces combined we were able to buy 2 used bikes. And you wouldn't believe how excited we are to ride around with our bike. How excited we are to put stuff in our bike baskets!!!!!!!! we even found a huge department/grocery store. Almosst like the ones in the states! We were warned that we would be able to get mostly single servings of everything, even in the grocery store. And it's so true! They utilize all of their space really well. There is no wasted space. I can't really explain fully, but i will try to take photos to show.

Good for you!!! How exciting to be so independent now - you can go anywhere - just be careful of traffic patterns, etc. How are you being received there? Curious to hear about the climate, culture, politics, etc. bonnie
