sunday

Untitled Sunday, we thought hanging out by the Minoo Falls would be a nice way to keep cool...

We walked in 3.8 kilometers (2.3 miles) to the falls...

We thought ahead and bought some sandwiches to eat once we reached the falls.

There were tons of people...

Before reaching the falls though, we came across this funky beetle. First time for me to see a blingy reddish one (usually they are blingy bluish-green).

I shot a short video of the falls here, if you are interested, please take a look.

wild monkey looking for unattended bento...don't feed them, there is a 10,000 yen fine! #minoo #osaka #monkey #箕面 #大阪 #猿 Then this guy came out to look for unattended bento...Of course, Satoshi went up close to it to take its photo...

Apparently he has not learned his lesson when it comes to monkeys....sigh.

The monkey crossed over to where others were eating, it was a good thing no one got hurt, but I was shocked that no one warned those people, they were more intent on filming the whole thing on their phones...

coffee float...like affogato but cold version❤︎ #箕面 #大阪 #山本珈琲 #コーヒーフロート #yamamotocoffee #minoo #osaka #coffeefloat #latergram Since the falls did not relieve any heat or humidity, we decided to hang out at Yamamoto Coffee which is located at the middle of the park.

Satoshi ordered a melon cream soda while I ordered a coffee float.

In the afternoon, there was a freak rainstorm that lasted an hour or so, with lightning and thunder.

Lots of excitement, yeah?! How was your Sunday?

Aaaaahhhh, I'm scared of monkeys! And there's a baby in the same picture! OMG. Your drinks look so good, BTW.

I remember *that* post about Satoshi and the monkeys - too funny (although not for you!)

Sunday (night) we ate and drank too much at our neighbor's bbq party. I am still recovering - those college days drinking binges are definitely over for me....

Those drinks look refreshing! Not sure about the monkey though, I would probably be too scared to go near it. Mich

"that" time was so scary, Rowena...nice that you party with your neighbors!

Those drinks were really good, Mich :)

Take care everyone!

There's a reason they call it "Wild"life.........not sure if Satoshi has gotten any faster, you know, just in case another monkey decides to chase him.
