April 2, 2012

Not much to take pictures of this week.  But we got up one morning and we were truly "in the clouds."  Usually we can see clear across the canyon to the houses on the other side.

These pictures are out of the window from our apartment on the 7th floor.
Looking down on the Japanese Embasy.

Just a half hour later we were able to see the blue sky and all the buildings.  The fog had lifted and everything was beautiful.

This is how we buy our milk.  It comes in a plastic bag.  There is only a liter in each bag.  We cut off the corners at the top and pour the milk into a pitcher.  The small bag is an individual drink.  People carry them around during the day, bite off the corner and suck out the contents.  We see many people with the bag hanging from their mouths as they walk down the street.

We have juice, tomato sauce and mayonesa in the same kind of containers.  The only cans we see are from the United States.

We needed to share our prizes from Kellogg's Corn Flakes.  It was fun to be like little kids again and search for the "Prize".  When we were young, you had to search through the cereal.  But now, all you have to do is take out the bag of cereal and the car is in the bottom.  The names of the cars are: Sam Explorer and Tony Racer.  Pretty original names, huh?  Oh well, a diversion!!
