Well Kyoto has certainly been enjoyable and to celebrate our last full day it turned on blue skies and 18c. It was so good I could even wear the one T-shirt I brought with me.
To live up to the expectations of those you left back in Adelaide, Helen and I continue to do the peace signs in our photos. We’ve also, god forbid gone to Mc Donalds. T and B (and their relatives) advised that it was a better experience than that in Australia! It is true that even the small Maccas in Nara had, for some reason, a grand piano. Helen did have a prawn burger. We can advise that the food still has the same awful consistency and generally poor taste, although I reckon the lettuce is better here.
To continue with the things we promised to do. Helen and I have had our photo taken in a “Astro Boy” booth. We expected stickers but rather got lots of little photos! Reading Japanese would help us there! We’ll try again for a sticker machine!
We’re having some fine Kaseki food served to our room tonight and a final sleep on our futons (yeah!!!) I am looking forward to our western bed on our return.
