Ticked off our bucket list: experiencing the Japanese tradition of enjoying beautiful flowers, HANAMI! More cherry blossoms greeted us as we explored Ohori and Maizuru parks!
Travel tip: many hawks fly around Ohori park, so be careful with your food! A hawk swooped down and grabbed a piece of karaage from my hand while I was busy admiring some chubby pigeons! I was startled and amazed at the same time!

Ahhhh Huis Ten Bosch!!! It’s so Instagrammable that my camera ran out of juice! So many great pictures, so difficult to choose which one to post for this album! Hence, this collage! A must-see in Sasebo, Nagasaki!!

Today was all about history as we visited the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum and Peace Park. We cried as we read about what happened on August 9, 1945. We also watched/listened to survivors’ accounts…my shawl was wet with tears! 😦
We were also a little sad about not seeing as many cherry blossoms as expected, but we still appreciated Nagasaki’s beauty!

Ahhh ’twas so nice to see one of my best friends after 2 months! Nikki was the one who encouraged me to register as a self-employed professional, so it’s only fitting that we accomplish our BIR duties together. Lucky that we belong to the same awesome RDO: 45! Next step: submitting the necessary documents to RareJob, another common denominator for us.
