Writing and Tokyo Fun Fact

I was never much of writer.  In fact I loathed writing in school.  As a teacher, sometimes I felt bad about making my students write so much, but they needed to learn the basic skills of writing…so I taught it, because as a teacher that was my job.  Writing is not my strength, but I need to write in order to upkeep my blog.  So pardon my writing—I hope it doesn’t bore you.

So today I will keep this blog post short and sweet, because writing is not my strength.

Here is a little fun fact from Tokyo…if you want to live in Tokyo and you like fruits then you may have a problem…fruits are quite expensive in Tokyo.  You see these large, juicy grapes…don’t you just want to gobble them up?!?!  Think again.  Look at the price in the corner.  5, 775 YEN!!!  Depending on the exchange rate, that is approximately $71.11 for grapes!!!  They don’t look as delicious anymore huh…

We had the most delicious grapes in Japan, though I don’t remember them costing that much. They were the best grapes EVER! Seriously.

Why would you say that you are not a great writer. I have gone on many journeys through your photos and journaling of your adventure. I appreciate each tidbit and fact that goes with each photo. I have learned and leaped on your journey with you.

I think that is the coolest picture of the grapes. $71 or not. It is a beautiful picture and when you know something is not easily accessible. We desire it. Life.

Just like I don’t see you everyday. . . . so I long for a little bit of Mindy. Did you hear me Brent?

Hugs, good thoughts and waiting for my photos and blogs.

Well damn….no wonder we didn’t eat any grapes in Japan! Those better be the best grapes anyone has ever eaten. And I scold Jarr for buying grapes at $7.00 a pound. Good thing we don’t live in Japan!
