The other day I was browsing over old photos and came across some pictures we took one day when we lived in Okinawa, Japan.
It’s so interesting how our minds forget some details, but when we look at a few pictures, suddenly we can remember so many things we hadn’t thought about in years.
Anyway, these photos brought a smile to my face.
On this particular day, we drove north to pick mikans (tangerines) since it was mikan picking season there.
We picked as many tangerines as we thought we could reasonably eat and then we stumbled on a beautiful old Japanese tea house.
After that, we headed back to our house but saw a sign on the road advertising a “Snake vs. Mongoose” showdown.
Apparently, they don’t do those shows anymore as they are somewhat inhumane, but instead they presented a series of snakes to curious onlookers.
A Japanese snake handler demonstrated all kinds of trick with the snakes and asked for volunteers from the audience.
There was no way I was letting a snake breathe down my neck, but Sean posed for a picture.
I can’t believe Sean let that snake so close to his face!
