This morning, I went to the gym as usual. I enjoyed hula dancing, walking in the swimming pool and aqua dancing. After that, I dip in the massage pool.

To be honest, it's the most enjoyable time for me at the gym. Water jets massage your body: the bottom of your feet, calves, thighs, buttocks, and lower back. Many elderly people use it while they enjoy chatting with each other. I feel that I'm too young to join, but I've recently talked with many women who are in their 80s.

I'm always amazed that almost everyone at the gym is very friendly and funny. They are the epitome of Osaka-ness. I chuckle to myself every time cute elderly women call me “Oneechan!” which means young lady. In Osaka, calling middle women "oneechan" isn't very rare though.
