My Old Nippon Home

Everyone's back from Japan, though jet lag lingers on. I can't really write about their trip, but I was happy to learn that my daughters experienced important aspects of Japanese culture during their nearly three weeks there. They brought back some pictures to show it, too:

Really, Col. Sanders statues are found on many shopping streets in Japan, naturally in front of KFC outlets, which are known as "Kentucky" in Japan. Do we have slightly-larger-than-life-sized statues of the Colonel in front of chicken eateries in the United States? Not that I've ever seen, and we're poorer for it.
