English Diary: I Went to the Library. 20220512 #2-90
Hello everyone, welcome back to my channel. My name is Mai, and this is the Nomadonomado English diary for the 12th of May 2022.
Yesterday, I went shopping in the arcade shopping street near the station, where they have a couple of 100 yen shops. 100 yen shops are the places that I always go to every time I come back to Japan. I bought Japanese chopsticks because our chopsticks in Canada have worn out, and a few pairs of shocks.
I have a niece who is 13 years old. She came to the shops too with me. She rode a bike but I walked, so we met at the 100 yen shop, and hung around together.
After the shopping, she said that she wanted to go to the library. There is a library near my parents’ house. We went back home once to put the shopping bags down and went out again. The library was just seven-minute away to walk.
It was the first time that she went to the library and she had to made an user card. It was quite straightforward to make a library card. She needed to show her school card. Shortly, she got her card and borrowed a few novels. I borrowed a couple of books too. It also was the first time that I used the library in Japan after years.
Last night, I had a Japanese red wine again which was brewed in Hokkaido. I think it was reasonable compared with the quality. It was light but juicy, lots of flavour of grape. It only contains 12% of alcohol, so it was very easy to drink. I thought it could be sweet because inexpensive wines sometimes are just full of sugar, but it was not too bad.
