To those of you celebrating (American) Thanksgiving today: happy day and bon appetit! Although we probably won't be consuming any turkey or cranberry sauce today, we are loving the fall colors of Japan and trying to maximize our last days here in Osaka. Strolling through Shitennoji Park, we found some peace in the middle of a bustling city, and reflected on our deep gratitude for our ability to make this trip, and for our impending return to our loved ones in North America.
Below, Harold amuses a local ramen noodle vendor, creating a fun photo op in Osaka's American shopping district.
Next, a gratuitous dog photo: me and Husky, one of my very favorite dogs at the abandoned animal shelter where we just spent two weeks volunteering in Tokushima.
