Ok - First off, I have to thank my AWESOME parents for saving us in a time of need with a wonderful package filled with : LIFE!!!! (and much more...)
It was very appreciated, and what perfect timing too - we had just been debating what to have for breakfast!
Hooray! Tara finally gets a life!!!
Yeah!!! I have always wanted a life.....thanks guys :)
Anyways. As exciting as that was, the weekend just kept on getting better. The next day we decided to get out of the city and head to Inuyama, a town about 45 minutes away, with what they call, "a national treasure". Our mission: to invade a castle and then spy on local fishing habits.
Infiltrating the gates was quite easy. The samurai were on lunch break.
The national treasure, otherwise known as Inuyama castle, as seen from afar...
I also seen it from afar.
Along our path we noted some brilliant looking flowers, so we took a moment to stop and smell the....umm...prickly red things??
Oh wait...its not real. Good trick guys, but not good enough.
I tried using the ladles that were placed across the bamboo bars, but as far as I could tell nothing special happened. Perhaps I have been blessed with the luck of the dragon now, and just don't realize it yet. Or perhaps I have offended him and wakened the ancient evil spirits. Only time will tell.
OK - our mode of transmission won't let us post more than this at a time, so please see Inuyama Part II and III if you want to know how successful this outting was!
It was very successful.... oops I ruined the surprise. Oh well, tune in for more details anyway.
