Ghibli Car

When we were on our way to the abandoned hospital we bumped into this strange car. It reminded me of the Studio Ghibli artworks. The car design looks like it has just come out from a Hayao Miyazaki movie. The readers of my Spanish blog found out that it is a Nissan S-Cargo and only 12,000 units were produced between 1989 and 1992.

Next to the car we met this charismatic Japanese man guarding a construction site with a lightsaber. We started talking and he told us that he had lived ten years in France and he had published two books about the study of languages.

    Love the light sabres, and the wierd cars.

    I once had a man of something over 65y sent by the gas company to exchange the propane for natural gas jets on a gaijin-sized oven I’d bought. He spoke English unaccountably well… with a New Jersey accent. Turns out he’d worked on an American base during the occupation. Lots of people with interesting stories out there, in what only appears to be a straight-laced society.
