There is a saying in Japan that your appetite grows in autumn.  Yes, I have eaten a lot in Istanbul last week and now here in Tokyo.  My appetite will be more developed in Hiroshima in the next week, then I will start to miss my everyday meal in London.

This is the third radish stamp in my collection.  In Europe, now is the time to make preserved food, the grace of forest.

食欲の秋、というのは本当だなぁと思います。どうしてこんなにお腹が空く?と不思議になるほどです。仕事をしていたらお腹が空いて当然だけど、なんにもしていない移動待ちの半日とか、そんな生産的でない夕方にもぺこぺこにお腹が空くのはちょっと理不尽な気がする。

赤カブを描いた切手がもう一枚ありました。スウェーデンの秋の味覚と保存食作りの切手。ヨーロッパでは秋の味覚は大事に保存され冬を越す食料になります。
