culture shock

Heard a high pitched whistle thingy tonight...it was the yaki imo (roasted sweet potato) man.

I've never bought from him though, kinda scared to.

Next time he comes around (and Satoshi's home), I'll be brave and check out the yaki imo man.

I just checked out other YouTube videos on the Yaki Imo Man. So cute!!! I wish we had such things here.

That really neat! You ever had neighborhood manapua man growing up? We also had the weekly produce guy in his van.

K and S said...

Kirk, ice cream man though I think we did call him the manapua man.

Take care!

oh wow, sounds more like a type of warning whistle, so no wonder you were hesitant! I expected to hear an actual human whistling.

I am not hesitant of the whistle, I've heard mixed things about these types of vendors, Rowena, sometimes they sell poorly roasted potatoes.

Take care.
