Immpressions of coming back

"Small!" was my first impression I had when I came back to Japan. The bus, the seats in it, coins, the coffee cup at a cafe, the dishes in a restaurant, the subway, cars, and people. They are all small to a person who came back from the giant country to the elf country. I feel I became Gulliver because most people around me are shorter and thinner. Most young women are especially small, thin, and dressed up. They are like dolls. When I was standing in a small and cramped subway, there were a lot of pretty dolls around me, and I was a little bit happier. I could never feel this kind of happiness in Canada, because women there were bigger, stronger, and rather plain. And because there were few cramped trains or buses in Canada.
