Hello. How are you? I bet you’re hot! We all are.  

Many people in Kyoto think that Gion Matsuri rings in summer. We went to this festival on Friday night.  

 (A few other people had the same idea…) 





Then we hit the street.   

And got some food.  


 We did NOT eat this! 😦






Of course, all this care-free fun has consequences… 





There is something haunting but interesting about the music… 


Thanks for reading!

p.s. OOPS! I almost forgot; my favorite picture from that night. Funny t-shirt! What does it mean…?
