Today I went downtown to buy a bike (at a camera store, of course) and then headed around town to see the cherry blossoms (sakura). There were a few in some shrines downtown, but the best place was Meijo Koen. There were all kinds of people sitting under the trees eating and drinking and singing. I wish the weather were better (it was cloudy so the colors didn’t turn out so hot), but tomorrow it’s supposed to rain, so this might have been my last chance. Perhaps next weekend-we’ll see.
Guess what a store named “The Great Monkey Flip” sells? Eyeglass frames, of course.
