Random Photos from January

Here, the police play games with children.

I can now return home, a happy man.

Cheese fondue from BK. It was actually pretty good.

Everyone is always so tired.

Curly fries from McDonald's.

Took a big step and bought a rice maker.

Now I can make delicious curry dishes at home, complete with Johnsonville brats. 

Half spicy sausage and jalepeños (so good) and half squid/shrimp/tuna (pretty good). Thanks Pizza Hut.

December

I finally started cooking for myself.

Castle in Kyoto at night.


The Japanese love to light stuff up during the holidays.

Everyday of the last week of school before break I found treats waiting for me at my desk.

My calligraphy skills are improving.

My pottery isn't so bad either.

I went to a Spanish bar with some buddies. The bartender made me one of his own nonalcoholic creations. It was on the house because the bar and I have the same name.


The Japanese love Christmas, but its just for fun for them. No religious overtones or days off. Pretty much a more romantic Halloween. 

This bus was so loungey.

The guy in front of me had the same shoes as me. 

Japanese Mcdonalds is having a potato crisis so they give you some nuggets to offset the smaller fries.

Santa-san!

Alone in Kyoto

Well that's a funny looking temple.





600 yen to walk through the garden. Worth it. Although, I did immediately question my logic, seeing as I'm extremely allergic to everything.



I never thought I'd actually see this location in person.








The Japanese love the changing of the leaves' colors. I can see the appeal. 





Kyoto is a big city with a lot to see; I needed some direction. I turned to one of my favorite films, Lost in Translation. Can you spot the places I visited in the clip?
