Old photo with haibun

Me and my room mate in high school days. We came to Hawaii just a few months before, and were living behind a large garage (the house in the background). This car did not belong to the garage, it belonged to someone else, who came around time to time and made us wash his car.
Having come from rural Japan of 1960s, car like this was a gem to me. I did not mind washing the gem. I loved what I was doing, and meanwhile the car owner got a free car wash. My first lesson of "give and take", or was it?

Chore's done,
pool of water reflects
peaks of mountains

I will be out of town for a few days. Tokyo again.
