N. Korean Tunnels, Zero. Marilyn Monroe, Two: A Photo Essay

Yesterday's breaking news was the discovery of a tunnel in Motobu Okinawa, Japan.

It seems it was dug with the assistance of some North Koreans back in the 1940's.

What in the world were any Koreans doing digging tunnels on the Ryukyu Islands, ever ?

So, the mission, today, was to grab cameras and find the tunnels.

We scored a big zero on tunnels but, found an interesting Cafe.

The upstairs and downstairs were full of antiques and treasures from around the world.

Pharaoh statues, Old World globes, horns and trinkets were everywhere.

Even a knight in armor was standing in a corner.

Under the stairwell, that poster of Marilyn Monroe caught my eyes but, I wouldn't dare move it.

If the North Koreans were really here, they may have bobby-trapped the place.  Hah !

So, the zoom lens was used to get a little closer.

No luck finding the North Korean tunnel but, we'll go back again later this week.

Two Marilyn Monroe posters made the trip worthwhile.

It's hard to believe the North Koreans were digging tunnels here.

But, if I find any evidence, after I shoot it with a camera, I'll let you know.
