John and I just returned from 2 weeks in Japan and I've begun to write about it on Ed & Reub (see side bar) where I've also included a lot more pictures.
But no blue pictures! So I thought this might be a good place for them.
One of the things I loved about Japan was the attention to detail.
The food was so simple and so pretty,
and so fresh.
These are incense sticks at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Kyoto. The crooked one in front is mine.
I'm glad to be back in Oregon, but Japan was really great. I wish I had taken more pictures of blue things, though, because I do love blue!
