Oddly Okinawan

It’s a learning experience here in a whole new culture.  Most of it is very interesting and some of it is downright funny!  The food, the people, and the oddly translated signs…it’s an adventure!

Today is dedicated to everything oddly Okinawan.  Things we have seen here that we find interesting, odd, and just plain hilarious!

The clown style cars…some are cute and some are so small you have to wonder.  Matchbox on steroids.
