Last night as walked

| No Comments

Last night as walked home, Meziane Mejdoud wobbled by on a bicycle and stopped to talk to us.

He's quite a character. Originally from Algeria, he's lived in Japan for twenty years ("vingt ans" is what he said, actually, since we conducted our conversation in English, French and Japanese). He owns a home in Sengoku, just a few kilometers north of us. He's married to a local woman, but he doesn't seem to speak much Japanese.

He was extremely nice, if a bit off balance, and told us that if we ever felt Foreigner's Stress (he voiced it like a tragic disease), we should come visit his home to relax. I've filed his name and phone number in my card file and we'll see if I ever feel stressed enough to take him up on the offer.
