I took these pictures at a shrine near Ueno Park. I'm not exactly sure what shrine this is. Once you've seen a couple of shrines, they all start to look alike...just like Mexicans.**** But, it reminded me of a scene in Memoirs of a Geisha.
The torii gates were brightly painted, and it was really awesome to walk through. It was like being transported to another century...
(Husband and Jude...walking through the gates.)
(At the end of the gates, there stood this little shrine.)
(Me...standing at the gate entrance. You can see half of Jude leaning up against the stone statues.)
****I'm not a racist. I only make fun of my own breed of peeps. Wait, I take that back... I am a racist...I hate stupid people!
I'm a 4 foot 10 inch asthmatic Hispanic momma now living in Japan. ****But was evacuated after the March 11th earthquake and currently homeless in Texas!***The State Department allowed us to return to Japan on April 14th, so I'm back in Japan, where I belong!
People seem to find my mishaps entertaining, so thus the blog begins. And, I have been encouraged to start a blog so people can keep up with us in Japan. I have had this creative bug in my ear telling me to do this for a while, but I could never bring myself to do it. By starting a blog, I feel like I'm going to the beach in a thong for the first time without a bikini wax! It is kind of scary to lay it all out there for the world to see and to judge.
My world is filled with hilarious moments that I can't wait to share. I hope you enjoy what I have to say and can laugh with me on a regular basis. After all, we could all use a little laughter in this God forsaken world.
