Greetings from my iPhone!
In the spirit of breaking out from routine I thought I’d share the apple with you, so to speak. Behold Okayama!
(I have no idea how these will appear on your computers. Let me know.)
I decided to go past Kyoto to spend some time on some islands in the Seto Sea. I alighted in Okayama when, by chance, they were gearing up for their big festival and fireworks celebration, the Momotaro Matsuri and Hanabi Taikai. (You’ll have to Google Momotaro for the full details on what this is about). Long story short, I stayed here and tomorrow I’ll most likely start off for Naoshima and Inujima.
In Tokyo people are used to people like me. Tall people. Not white, but white peoplele. Outside Kanto people stare — a lot. Your choices are to be uncomfortable, get mad, or roll with it. Let’s just say I made lots of new friend todays. 🙂
Oh, and I found proof that the creationists were right, after all. I think of it as The Annunciation of the King After The Fall. I’m going to work on it in Lightroom when I get back. 🙂
Hope you’re all enjoying your weekends. Why don’t you share the same vibe and break out from your routine this weekend?
