I woke up 6:00a.m.
After checking e-mail, I went to the lobby of this motel to drink free-coffee, some talk to staff of motel about bamboo.
I went to eat breakfast in Golden Pancake. Because this morning I felt a little bit full, I ordered 3 pancake only, and ate. Tasted very good as usual. Eating pancake as a breakfast is good experience for me, because in Japan we eat pancake as a dessert after lunch or dinner.
After breakfast I came back to my room and prepared for departure. Today I left this motel in St.Louis and moved to Golconda with my frined, Ben Walker and his mother,Joy. Golconda, which is a old town in southern Illinois.
Finishing preparation, I went to John L Brown Park and walk half an hour. There were no one, I just only walked around this big park. It was great feeling.
Ben and his mother arrived at 8:30a.m. at motel, we went to hospital in St.Louis to check Joy's condition. In hospital there were some stores, selling glasses, clothes, it was unique for me. In Japan I have never seen such stores in hospital.
