For this weekend's Saturday Snapshot, I am utilizing Alyce's "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken" proviso.
This shot was taken by my adventurous nephew, Chris.
He spent several years living in Japan and other parts of Asia. He did all that living-out-of-a-backpack, sleeping-in-hostels, and grow-a-beard-to-rival-Moses stuff that youth are so wont to do.
During one of his arduous intrepid hikes, he found himself at a spot that is exactly represented on a certain denomination of Japanese currency.
Please forgive my forgetting of the name of this place, I think it was Mount Rawfish or Lake Jumping-Sushi or something like that…. see the background there in the left side of the bill?
My first thought was, "Wow. 1,000 yen! How many hamburgers can I buy with that?"
A few months ago, this same nephew Chris and his girlfriend Ashley introduced me to the wonders of Thai food at an authentic Thai restaurant in Victoria, B.C., where he now lives.
Thank you Chris, for proving to me that there are foods that surpass even the glories of dead cow between two slabs of bread!
And, as always, thank you Alyce, for hosting this terrific Saturday Snapshot meme @ At Home With Books.
