Despite being made late by a certain exploding car tire and almost turning back, I decided not to let the fear of my safety get in the way of going to Gonohe’s third international music festival. It was a good choice – the music was chill, the bands were tight, the food was tasty and the leaves were sexy.
For those of you who couldn’t make it, at the end of the last performance the audience was called up on stage for a heart-warmingly awkward rendition of “What a Wonderful World” en masse, which I couldn’t get a picture of because I was too busy swaying.
AND FINALLY the Silver Week photo competition announcement!
The winner is… Mitchell Urbanowicz with his gorgeous photo of the ricefields in Maruyama Senmaida, Mie-ken. Congratulations! Your photo will be printed and framed for you soon. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to meet and get your prize.
