A Day at the Kin Village Matsuri. What a Way to Spend the Day !

It started with Okinawan Sumo Wrestling.

There must be over 800 more of these photos I haven't even looked at, yet.

 Then, around 4:30 this afternoon the Mayor cracked open the awamori jug.

Awamori is Okinawa's brand of sake.

As the sun started slipping down behind the mountains, Eisa was performed.

 Fireworks signaled, it was closing time just before 9PM.

It was a long day. The cameras are downloaded and recharging.

So, I should hurry home and rest up for tomorrow.

That will be the second day of Kin Village's matsuri and I have to shoot all of it.

Wouldn't you know it ?

Some pretty girl just knocked on my office door.

She says, "Mikesan, it's Saturday night.  Aren't you going drinking"?  

That does it.  I'm outta here.
