Last Friday, Meg, Zara, and I went out to eat pizza at a restaurant I recently found here. It was alright -- soooo cheesy! After dinner, Zara suggested that we go up to the island of Hirado (northern Nagasaki) for a fun Saturday trip. We got lucky with the weather and it didn't rain on us -- and we even got about an hour of sunlight!
So, we drove around and found this random sign to somewhere (an unknown destination) -- of course we had to go! The walk down there was...difficult for these two. :) How do my 3 dollar Old Navy flip flops have better traction than nice sandals? :)
After that, we drove some more. We were REALLY in the inaka (countryside). We saw cows, lots of green, and little old ladies driving huge farming equipment (cutest thing!!). Ah yes, and this sign. It says CAUTION!! (CHUI!)
Thought I would throw this in here to disgust some of you. They do a lot of octopus fishing in the water (there are also whale sightings there too!)...here are some dried baby octopus's for your eating enjoyment! No, I did not buy these.
Ladies, I had a fabulous time with you on Saturday! Next is SUNDAY'S YOSAKOI! Oharu!!
