Tanabata in Japan.
It was traditional to write a wish on a piece of paper and hang it on a bamboo tree.
I didn’t have a bamboo tree and I didn’t know what to wish for either.
Was there anything that I really wanted? I didn’t think so.
Besides which, I’d heard a rumour that if the sky wasn’t clear and you couldn’t see the two stars (representing the lovers meeting), then your wish wouldn’t come true anyway.
It was rainy season and with the clouds we had there was no chance in HELL of seeing anything.
Maybe next year.
