A year in photos - Day 93

I was so fascinated by these cans of Asahi. They were soooo tiny and adorable. They were only 135ml… about 4.5 ounces (for my American readers).

Monday was our last day in Tokyo. Dave and I were both off work because Korea was celebrating Buddha’s birthday. It was a good trip and we are hoping to go back again before we leave Korea next year.

One thing I liked about Japan was seeing Yu Darvish all over the place… Especially the cover of this magazine that shows him in his Rangers uniform.

A year in photos - Day 91

On Saturday, Dave and I left for Tokyo for the weekend. After we checked into the hotel, our first stop was Akihabara. This area of Tokyo is famous for its many electronics shops. We spotted these models outside of the electronics mall. I can’t imagine how awkward that job must be… standing around in uncomfortable shoes and clothes and posing for photos all day.


I am off work Friday – Wednesday for Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving). I am heading to Japan in the morning and I get back to Busan around noon on Monday. The actual Chuseok holiday falls on Monday and Tuesday. I don’t really have anything going on during that time, but on Wednesday I have ear surgery and I took off work on Thursday and Friday to recover. Sooo… I have the next 10 days off. It’s the longest amount of time I’ve had off work at once since coming to Korea just over 6 months ago. I’ll post pics from the Philippines and Japan when I get back.
