ゴミ "Gomi," a word I will never forget..
I have always wondered at the amount of garbage that piles up when I am in Japan. At times, it pains me, worries me and makes me wonder how one single human being could "produce!" all that stuff! Not that I haven't experienced the same when living alone in India, but the amount was lesser. Here, since everything is packaged from juice to chicken, as one consumes, there is a huge amount of garbage that piles up. Being alone, I typically move the garbage out once a week on the specific days and every time I do so it fills with regret and makes me stare with wonder at all the things I have consumed in a week! A fuel guzzling monster perhaps!(laugh!) On the lighter side, when will we have humans with hybrid technology who consume a bit less?!
