We’ve been doing a lot of hanging out, biking, eating, and sitting through typhoons the past two weeks.
Two Sundays ago, we went to Pupu Kitchen for the special Macrobiotic meal. The starter was amazake and vegetable sushi.
The next course was a kabocha puree with mochi.
This was the rest of the meal. It was pretty good!
For dessert, there was kabocha bread with red beans.
On October 6th, which was a Monday, we had a typhoon day!! Then it blew through and the day was beautiful from the afternoon. LUCKY!
Wednesday, there was a lunar eclipse!
When it was fully eclipsed, it looked red!
Another shot with the clouds.
This past Saturday, Teddy and I biked to Meijimura, which is 23.5 km away. We are CHAMPIONS.
This was a pretty stream we saw when we were almost there.
There were many cute birds around the rice fields!
The rice fields are almost ready for harvesting!
When we got to Meijimura – it was priceless. The parking lot guy literally looked at us like, “Why have you come here by bicycle?” LOL. Meiimura is a park filled with buildings from the Meiji period from all over Japan and some other places (we saw a building brought from Seattle and another from Hawaii).
This was taken inside the hotel at Meijimura.
A cool lamp inside the hotel.
I took this picture from the hotel. The building in the distance is a prison.
The bridge looked beautiful reflected in the river.
There was a very beautiful church brought from Kyoto there, as well.
I also saw a really cool brown praying mantis.
This was inside the train building.
This intricate wood carving was inside the hospital building.
There was a neat looking train and a railroad bridge.
There were also many scary looking spiders.
The next day, I went out to karaoke with one of the other teachers and two of her friends from church.
Afterwards, I met another friend at Nagoya Station.
We came to my house and had a party that eventually swelled to a five person one.
I am SHOCKED that I have failed.
I had laughed at Amanda when she had to drink this flavor, and now I feel her pain.
Teddy is trying to psych Amanda out.
She’s like, “What is he doing??”
Obviously, Teddy’s strategy was successful.
Well, that’s all for the past two weekends!!
