on the way to the market

ikeda41211 I usually go to several different markets, depending on my mood, depending on what I want to cook.

On this particular day, on this route, there is a "house" in our neighborhood that has 3 sakura trees on their property.

I say "house" but on their property there are actually 3 houses! (I've seen the inside when their gate opened to let their car in)

In the foreground there are also these huge sequoia trees, Satoshi says "you can really tell the seasons with these trees".

Actually to the left of this shot, is the other house.

I love how people here have trees and plants that can be enjoyed throughout the year.

I want to share with you another funny conversation between Satoshi and I recently:
s: (he's reading the newspaper in english) "Kat, do you feel geo-para-dized?"
k: "what?!"
s: geo-para-dized
k: "what?!"
s: geo-para-dized
k: "what are you reading?" (looks at what he is reading)
"jeopardized!"...
(she rolls on the floor laughing...)

What on earth WAS he reading?!

K and S said...

If I remember correctly Rowena, he was reading an article about the nuclear plant in Fukushima.

Take care.

That is too funny. Good thing you looked--that would have been pretty impossible to figure out. ;-)
