JAPAN | Sunday, 21 Mar 2010 | Views [425]

Dinner time and Brandon and I are trying to decide what we're hungry for...I want pancakes and Brandon wants sushi.  Where else but Okinawa could we find a cafe that would appease both of our cravings?  We had seen signs for Su Su Soon, but had yet to ... Read more >

This Saturday (March 13) we were all celebrating St. Patrick's Day in Koza City.  You all know that we're ahead of the States time-wise, but I bet you didn't realize we were THAT far into the future.  :)  Realistically, it's difficult to have a good ... Read more >
