Hi all, finally the sun came out! After days of heavy rains now the weather seems to be fine.

My home, the Kofun, is particularly shady and humid especially when it rains so it’s a perfect place to stay for me but not for the people who is visiting it! I’ve seen many of them working on the ground in the past days. Someone was excavating while other put strange objects into the soil. I cannot speak English or Italian but understood they’re looking for something.

Before it began my place, the kofun hosted a dead personage who was supposed to be a leader of his community.

Are they searching for his remains?


See you soon

I have seen them digging on the ground for days now. The lights and the excited voices disturb my sleep. One of them shouts:" Arrow, arrow! "
They seem to have found a metal object that has been there for a long time. They discuss among themselves, they say they will have to take him to the laboratory to look at him better.
Laboratory? What is a laboratory? A friend long ago told me that it is a place with so many lights and strange machines.
Brrr, I shudder to think of it. Oh well, I hope that the darkness will soon fall so they will go away.

See you soon.

Another season is about to end and I begin to get used to the presence of these new friends. I think they are very interested in this place and want to find out who was here before me.

I can't help them, I'm just a young bat! Of course, if my father or grandfather had been alive, everything would have been easier.  But the thing begins to intrigue me and for days I observe their vans with interest.

Who knows where they will go in the evening. Where will they bring the objects they find? Maybe in that place they call "laboratory"?

My curiosity grows and I would like to know more.

I know that once I take courage and follow them.

See you soon.
