Mohikans, Cousins and fireworks...

Snappy title don't you think? Still playing catch up here. We got back from our fishy day out and the Japanese cousins had arrived. T-kun is now in 5th grade and had a tonne of homework to do, I felt really sorry for him because he just wanted to play with the other two but no, he had to finish all his homework first. So whilst he was slaving away over a hot notebook, Ebi-kun and Y-chan got busy building and doing puzzles.

After a dinner of yes, sashimi, They got the fireworks out. I am not a fan and even less of one when the blokes running the show are both drunk! Luckily nobody got hurt (except for the 72 mosquito bites that I got in the space of 10 minutes) and the kids thought it was great.

Y-chan had got dressed up in her yukata so Ebi-kun wanted his hair doing then of course, as soon a T-kun saw it, he wanted his doing too, so a final pic of the cool kids....

Back home November 5th is the day we celebrate with fireworks, I still find it odd watching them in the summer, when is firework season where you are?

  1. Cool hair but boo to the homework.

    I hate fireworks at all times of the year, especially when they are set off without warning. at least I know they are going to happen on the 5th of November. Someone had a big display at about 11pm least week. I nearly jumped out of the window to yell at them for being selfish pigs but somehow I restrained myself!

  2. Hmm, mostly in north India, it is Dusshera and Diwali - so somewhere in October/November. And then there is Gurupurab which is after Diwali. And weddings - that can be anytime, and New Year, of course.


Thank you!
