Afternoon Walk Along Kamo River

Hello!

I hate to say this, but yes, I am sorry for long time not posts anything here.

There are many reasons for excuse 😀 hehehe…

As you know, I have quite a great crush on rivers… as my study object, or particularly riverside area, since I am not a civil engineer. Rasanya seperti CLBK (cinta lama belum kelar), ketika dulu bergumul dengan sungai-sungaian, tau-tau berkutat dengan bencana, sigh, I don’t wanna talk about it any longer but still have to be “connected” with it. Yeah, anything, pokoknya kali ini belajarnya berhubungan dengan sungai lagi. Back to the stream~

Setelah dua tahun berselang sejak “putus” dari research on riverside, yang mana saya njungkir njempalik berjemur di bawah sinar matahari menyusuri Selokan Mataram (literally, it’s not a river, it’s a canal), akhirnya saya kembali lagi ke topic ini untuk research doctoral. Sounds great, isn’t it?

Entah kenapa, waktu dapat kesempatan untuk kuliah lagi (kuliah terus kapan kelarnya?), topic ini lah yang terlintas di kepala. Bukan karena mudah, hanya karena… this is why I call it LOVE, I don’t know exactly WHY I involve myself into it, SUFFERING in it, and HAPPY (probably) in the end of it, jyahh…

But yeah, topic ini lah yang mengantarkan aku meraih mimpi, sekolah di Jepang! (plus punya anak di sini juga, khehehe…)

Oke, sebenernya ini sudah agak lama, bulan Agustus 2014, beberapa minggu menjelang pindah apato. Sore itu, setelah typhoon menerpa Kyoto, akhirnya langit pun cerah kembali. Saya, mas Kamen Rider dan si Baymax (my little K) memutuskan untuk jalan-jalan menyusuri Sungai Kamo (from Demachiyanagi to Sanjo Bridge, then we continued to Shijo Bridge). Ceritanya pingin cari inspirasi riverside design (alas an formalnya) sekalian membunuh bosan di dorm terus.

So, what I got from there?

A lot.

Many interesting spots, activities, stuffs, people, animals, the scenery…

End of walk, hosh! 😉

I like this river a lot, after I came to Kyoto in 2012, I fell in love with the river at the first sight! And you know what, this river (for me) in summer is the most attractive, of course, because of noryu-yuka (riverside terraces). But wait, the promenade is also impressive, since many people can enjoy doing many things here, just sit or doing sport, or play with kids or pet, they seems lively!

I imagine to do this too when I go back to my country, especially in my hometown Yogyakarta. Someday, maybe… I am now working on it.

Wish me luck!
