A Day Trip to the Capital City of Naha in Okinawa, Japan
Here's something you don't see me do very often.
Today, Doc Graff and I went to the big city, just in case it decided to rain.
Right off the International Avenue (Kokusaidori) they have a covered shopping mall.
The shops run air-conditioning and it feels great, after you've been out in the August humidity.
We went through the meat market and took a few photos.
Then, hit the fish market to shoot some of those colorful fish on ice.
Looking at all that food makes a person hungry so, we grabbed a quick lunch.
After eating, Doc knows we better get moving or, I'll fall asleep so, we left the city.
Naha wasn't very far behind us when I remembered I had some more business to do.
Probably, twenty years has gone by since I last stepped into this place.
They have the awesomeyummiest ice cream in the world.
I know. That ain't a word. But, it should be.
And, I really didn't need a scoop of strawberry cheesecake ice cream.
So, I had two.
Back up in the neck of the woods I call home, we had to break for coffee.
Richamocha Cafe was my temporary office for a few months so, I had to stop by and say "Hi".
The gals working in there know how to make a mean cup of coffee.
All my photos from the big city are developed and, I never even took my afternoon nap.
Maybe, on the way home I better stop off somewhere and have a beer !
