The sounds of summer

Summer in Japan means those noisy semi (cicada) are back. It seems for a month or so every tree in Yokohama is infested with these bugs. They unnerve me. I hate bugs.  But most Japanese welcome the sound as a New Yorker  might welcome the music of an ice cream truck or a firecracker’s explosion as the sounds of summer.To me they sound like a car alarm from hell, that cannot be turned off, and kinda follows you wherever you go like a song stuck in your head.

I found a couple of videos about them…check them out

ps: And they fly…fast and blindly so they’re prone to fly into you

    Hate bugs.

    Hate`em.

    And I thought crickets were bad. Some of us don´t know how good we have it.

    Stay Loco man.

    Hasta.

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
