December Update

  Fay, the kids, and Grandma Sunshine left for Chiba on Sunday night, November 28th, while I stayed on in Osaka for a few more days. I finished up work, completed packing, and attempted a proper parting with our close friends. On the night of the 2nd of the next month I found myself on an over-night bus--whisked away. By that time my terrible cold had subsided, and I was able to travel in ease.
  We immediately went to see a few houses, almost settled for a few, but reached an agreement on a particular one that I had basically thrown out of our options because I didn't think it was homey enough. This was on the 9th, a week later.
  Now, the paperwork is done, and we have the key to our new home. We'll be moving in on the 17th. So, heads up for photo's on our blog soon, of our new house. It's a big burden off our backs for sure, 'cause it's been 2 weeks since we got here, and we hadnt a home until now.
  ...The next hurdle is a job.

Summer Festival Performance and Kids Billiards

That to the left there is a Chinese ice-cream delicacy. To the right is a 3-D art performance. Performers come from all over Japan to audition, and there are 3 days in a year where about 15 to 20 of them come to perform. It was lots of fun seeing them. 

Kenji and Kasandra (or however her name is spelled) is playing billiards. They were actually pretty good. We got this awesome 15-game table that has lots of fun games. Crazy huh!

Aquarium with Lily Frushey and Nozo

This is a petting pool, where kids and adults alike can touch sharks and stingrays. 

Merch's Breezy Visit

I was working for this Turkish man making Turkish food for a bit. It was fun while it lasted. I quit after 2 weeks because he said that he'd lower my pay due to bad business. 'Tis could be the way of Turkey, but such disorganization is not the way of Japan. Yet, he is a sweet man, and he gives us ice-cream once in a while. 

We are all familiar with Kaiten-Zushi aren't we? And yet some would say that it is not REAL sushi, that if you want to eat real sushi you will need to pay 3 times more. But I go there because I like it anyway. And it was a lot of fun, wasn't it Merch?
