Frog lullaby

Okay, so comments such as "I'm getting sick of Kitty!" are probably quite valid. Sorry, it has been a pretty busy, but very boring week with teaching every day at either primary schools or kindergarten. Anyway, to bide you over until something interesting actually happens here, I have taken a very short "sound video" of the lovely chorus that can be heard every night here now as the rice fields are slowly filled with water and planted out. From now on there is always the dilemma of whether I would rather not be able to sleep due to the noise or whether I would rather not be able to sleep due to the heat - or in other words whether I should shut the windows at night or not! Anyway, here is a short frog lullaby for you - not very clear, but for those of you who haven't been here during that season it may give you a small indication of the sounds of the countryside of Japan in June!

    Hey Jo,

    That sounds great and reminds me of the concert we also could hear in Nakatsu! Here in Lyon it´s like the rainy season too but it´s really cold and instead of frogs we have plenty of snails... but they don´t make any noise!!!

    Take care, Birgit
