I know you've done this. We've done it too. Many Japanese who live by us have never seen some of the things I've seen in this last year and a half. I remember when we lived in Southeast Texas many, many years ago. It was our first move away from home and we thought we'd be there about two years. Nine months later my husband was given a promotion and we would be moving to South Dakota. We had two weeks. It was a huge wake up call. We hadn't done a thing in the area. We hadn't driven around to see Galveston, we hadn't driven to Houston. We had just set up house and gone about our business. Often it takes having company to go see interesting things around your home. Stop that, right now! Enjoy where you live. Take the time to investigate all it has to offer. Go on day trips in your local area. Check out the parks, museums, events and even the aquarium!
My friend took me to the aquarium in Nagoya in January. You may have seen some of the photos on Facebook or Instagram. It's super hard to narrow it down here. I think I almost love the people, especially children, more than the actually sea animals. Take the little tour in no particular order.
This is a new one for me.
"who are you looking at?"
"ichi, ni, san, chizu"
You just never know what you'll see!
Lesson learned. I'm heading out Wednesday for hopefully an amazing location. I'll keep you posted!
