chỉ là nỗi nhớ đốt thiêu tâm hồn
chỉ là những phút khát khao điên dại
anh rất nhớ em
– giay phut mong manh

A visit to Kobe! I went with Tman, Selvia, and two of Selvia’s Japanese friends. It was an overall nice trip, a lottttttt of walking. The sites we saw were great though. (This was…during Golden Week..which was…the 1st of May…).

We started in Chinatown.

For lunch Selvia and I decided to walk around instead of sitting down, and I ended up getting some of this:

It was pretty delicious. Wasn’t enough to satisfy me but, I made due for then (cuz it was uber expensive!).

Then we headed to Kobe port. The overall weather for the day was really nice, so it made the port especially refreshing.

We went to a Shrine afterwards. Or is this a Temple? No…I’m pretty sure it’s a Shrine.

After the Shrine we went to one of the Western Houses, which was all the way up a goshdarn hill.

The trip was overall very relaxing and nice. In Chinatown I found a store that sound ingredients for Vietnamese food. I got really excited and have been wanting to go back, but am realizing that even if I get all the spices, I don’t have the other ingredients so it’s like…having half of a recipe, not even.

The only bad part about that day? On the way home we cut through the park and my dumbarse self slipped on a stair and sprained my ankle. So no Nara the next day. Spent the rest of Golden Week in my room. Pooh.
