Gosh. I so wish I was still on holiday right about now. Work has become an all-consuming pit of despair lately, with bright spots in between, but mostly despair. Hahaha. I guess I'm being melodramatic. It's not that bad, all things considering.

But enough about reality, let me transport you back a week (or two now), to our Okinawa trip. Okinawa, being a military base of the U.S.A, definitely has more influences from the land of the free than most places in Japan I have been so far. This background here is from a shopping area called 'American Village'. Basically, after the wedding, Leon and I decided to stay around central Okinawa, and our hotel is actually 20 minutes by car from this place - an amazing Air Bnb that's giving me the itch to redesign our apartment. 

Then we came here. 

And spent more than two hours inside the biggest vintage store/American goods store I have ever seen. rows upon rows of vintage army uniforms, boiler suits, and Coca-cola shirts! I bought one such shirt (me and my obsession with all things Coca-cola, except for the drink), and this amazing vintage jacket. I wish I could have bought more stuff - like a few jumpsuits and vintage track suits, butttt...I didn't want to go overboard. Ha! Smart thinking. Not.

The weather went downhill from there. It rained on this day, actually. But nothing could dampen my spirit for exploration. And shopping! Hahaha. Anyways, I'll see you soon, loves! - Che
