Kurashiki day

Our first day trip from Yakage was to nearby Kurashiki.  While Lauren was at work, we headed out. 

Lauren told us if we leave at the right time, we will catch the ‘children’s art’ train

Kurashiki is a pretty big city, with a beautiful historical section.  We walked from the train station– down the long long shopping street – to the start of the historical section.  Since we spent most of our time looking at shops on the shopping street, we didn’t get very far into the old part before we had to turn back to catch the train to meet up with Lauren after work.

Paul made me eat pizza for lunch, at a place Lauren and he ate before.  Pizza!   It was, weirdly, one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had.  .
