I've been having a blast here in Tokyo, but probably my favorite thing to do is to slum around Omotesando taking people's pictures. It's very relaxing. Sadly my pictures don't always turn out well because of the high-speed traffic in this area-it's hard to stop and ask for photos. But I like the candid-ness of these shots. Be sure to check out my mom's blog for her shots too!
Here is my mom, people-watching & ready to snap.
I had to stop and ask this guy for a picture-doesn't he look incredible? What an amazing face too!
The dogs here are soooo cute. This morning I saw a poodle with a heart shaved onto its back, and a Mickey-Mouse head shaved onto its hip. True story. Didn't have my camera though :(
I miss my dogs at home so much.
This was the cutest couple in the world…I snapped a picture of the woman, she was so beautiful.
Speaking of beautiful…LOL..this is Kohta, our waiter at Anniversarie Cafe. Kohta told us he got his nice tan from surfing in Chiba. I think my mom actually told Kohta that he was the cutest waiter in the world. Like, those were her exact words. Dios mio.
This is a picture my mom took from the first wedding we saw at Anniversarie Cafe. The first time we went to Anniversarie Cafe, we didn't know that they held weddings there. It was a big surprise when suddenly a huge wedding party filled the outdoor cafe and a beautiful bride and groom walked right past us. Brought a tear or two (okay, or 30…) to our eyes.
Some people asked how my hair extensions went….well, I kind of chickened out. I was sitting in the salon waiting for my appointment, and I was checking out all the chicks around me getting these long weaves put in, and then I realized that I wouldn't be able to throw my hair in a sloppy bun without my weave showing. Um, no thanks!! I think when I do crazy hair color, I'm just gonna die a big chunk pink. For the time being, I just got the ends of my hair bleached out. It's not a super noticeable change.
There is a really pretty garden next to our hotel. Very peaceful.

I'm off to find some dinner…I haven't been very adventurous with the food here…I know I'm missing out, but it is a little bit more difficult when you are vegetarian, though I know there are so many delicious veggie dishes out there. I'll try to scout some out tonight.
Thank you to the people who have left such nice comments during this trip, I really appreciate your support!
I'll try to get to my email sometime soon, sorry for the delayed correspondence.
