2 DAYS OF SHOOTING

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for the kind comments regarding the photos of Tokyo.  It's been so much fun to be able to share them with you!  I'm so pleased that you all like them.  Jane and I were out and about the last two days, and here is a sampling of what we saw.   First thing Tuesday, we had a vegetarian feast at Brown Rice Cafe.  One of Jane's readers recommended this restaurant, and we're so glad she did!

Jane and I were both a little homesick, so we decided an adoption was in order–meet Nao.  We had no idea the impact Nao would have on people when we took her out on the street…
Finding cat
I promptly stuck her in my big black purse…

Nao quickly made a lot of friends…

We stopped at the most fabulous antique store.  Unfortunately no photos other than outside the shop.  It really was something fantastic.  They have invited us for a noodle festival on Saturday.  The cute girl working in the shop fell for Nao….

Nao heads home… When we entered the lobby, the staff thought we were bringing in a real cat.  I handed Nao to one of the girls, and she screamed out loud.  I wish I had captured that on film.  It was priceless.  We all had a good laugh when everyone realized Nao is simply a toy.  (but maybe not)  more later.  xoxox
