Abe went to Japan with his brothers for a graduation trip. I had to work. I was very jealous of some of the cool things they got to experience in Japan…

Japanese temples

Bullet trains


Feeling like celebrities (being asked for autographs and to take pictures with strangers)

Real Japanese Futons (they really do sleep on the floor)


Japanese baseball fans (Hiroshima Carp)


But there were a few things I wasn’t quite so sure about…

I might get lost looking for the bathroom (and this makes me feel a little bad as a woman—do we really look like that?)


(Or wish I had)


Abe’s Japanese stalker


Raw horse meat (can’t knock it until you try it, I guess though)


Tsunami devastation


Public baths (glad it was men only and that Abe’s stalker hadn’t found him yet)


Japanese dessert


But mostly just this…


I’m glad he’s home, I was so glad to say Konnichiwa after 10 longs days without him.

That bathroom sign is hilarious. I'm still not quite 100% sure which gender is which, but I think the females are the red one? Right? So funny!

Suz said...

I would think the blue is female because of our bosums and men have big guts which are a little lower. ha ha

So,need more info about the stalker and which brother had the most picture requests. lol

The blue is the guy. But I agree it is confusing.

Wow, that is awesome!! But I truly would starve in another country!
