|We did manage to make some rice husk charcoal in the field one morning|
We've just returned from Leo's cottage (do you remember? we visited for a weekend last autumn)! We three Knights plus Leo celebrated the Summer Solstice at a festival in the mountains. It was a first for all of us to see Japanese Rastafarians! ARI was selling summer pork soup, oishi. And Kim found a swing!
|Shopping for the weekend|
|In a house at the festival we saw this skeleton and this sleeping man.|
|Visiting a shrine|
|Leo translating Kim's fortune (it was good!)|
|We visited a corral (it was not "golden")|
We also enjoyed Sukiyaki, again! And Sunday we adventured to Mountainous Marshlands, Numaparra, and had a picnic. It was a wonderful weekend with no rain!
