OK. Daisuke, we're going to talk about the guesthouse.
We live at the same guesthouse.
There's lots of people here.

Uh, it's quite nice to meet different people from different countries.
Uh-huh, what do you do at night at the guesthouse?
At night?
Normally, I work quite early, so I start working quite early so, I'm sleeping at night.

Oh, you don't party with the people, or have drinks or anything?
Only on Saturday. But Saturday, after I work, after work I go to Ginza to have a drink
with my workmates.
