I’ve somehow ended up following someone on Flickr whom I don’t know. Everyone else on my friends list is just that — an actual friend. So I’m not quite sure how Erika Ray got into the mix. But I’m glad she did.
Since I don’t know who she is and I really know absolutely nothing about her, I have no idea why she’s in Japan at the moment. But she seems to be having a wonderful time. And I’m having just as good a time living vicariously through the photos she posts nearly every day. She has an eye for exactly the kinds of things I’d be taking pictures of if I were in a foreign and amusing country.
Below are a few of my favorites along with her descriptions.
“Sexy water. For those of you who like to feel on your water bottle.”
“Giant cracker! This was fried before my eyes, painted with soy sauce, and then wrapped in seaweed. Delicious! Katy and I ate these on a park bench with a can of beer. Yum.”
“Donut-scented shower gel: brilliant.”
“Someone pissed off the chicken. Sendai, Japan.”
“Ummmm…shouldn’t this be illegal?”
“Truck stop tempura. Tempura was perfect. Noodle soup hit the spot while the snow came down outside. “
Check out more of her photos here, including trips to Bruges, Barcelona, Rome, Porto and all kinds of fabulous places that I’ve never been. But it’s like I have now!
