Nostalgia’s sake

So Mystery just had her recent high school nostaglia moment on LJ and then Steson went and asked for a picture of deer. Here are some more Japanese pictures to stir up the memories. And if you didn’t go to high school with me and you have never been to Japan (probably about 95% of people reading this), you can flick through and remember the days when our cameras could only take 24 pictures before we needed to change the film.

    I had Japanese tonight. I finally like those little Octopus balls (yakitori?).

    Also, Japanese green tea is so much better than the stuff sold in Woolworths. I need to take a trip next week to that asian supermarket in the city to buy some.

      So true!
      This trip is the reason I have never drunk tea with milk. It was my first time drinking so much tea, and when I got back home I couldn’t understand why milk is deemed necessary at all!

    I’m so sorry to hear what happened to you! Hope everything will heal soon. I feel for you, because I used to faint a lot too and I have a Harry Potter like scar on my forehead due to the fact that I fainted into a wall once…
