We had a visit from one of my favorite people! The kids mingled like glitter and glue, we had a fab day playing, fish sans chips (that's dutch style) at the beach, frolicking in the tulips, doing what fantastic mothers like us do (that's what we were told by a kindly enthusiastic old man).

In fact,I am blogging in a dark room on my phone while patting a restless baby on the back. got to make the most of otherwise dead time...

Lotus Flower blossoming in the summer. A beautiful icon of the tropical weather.
Textures and patterns. Love the Japanese textiles. In the middle picture are cousins at Obachan's birthday.
Kobe: Akemi's home town. A port city nestled into the foot of mountains.
Kobe by night.
Kyoto & surrounds
Ready for the food pictures? I think I Douwe has caught the taking pictures of food bug. But when the food is this good, who wouldn't take pictures, I ask you?!
Food set #1 Lots of sashimi and bento.
Food set #2 More sashimi and unagi
Food set #3 ...Sashimi and okonomiyaki. The top right sashimi set almost brings a tear to my eye with its lyrical presentation. Yes! Food can sing.
Quintessential Japanese images. The photos of paintings are painted by family members who were famous artists
