Okayama, Matsue, Takamatsu and Matsuyama wrap-up
The travel fatigue had kicked in, no doubt. When my friend was eager to run everywhere, I just wanted to write my next story (I still managed to publish a book at that time while following this crazy itinerary).
What did I do in OKAYAMA :
I visited the (very pretty) castle and gardens, and ate the most delicious prawn curry in the train station. But Okayama has a special spot in my memories for something else : the Franponais (the French version of Engrish). I think I never laughed so hard in my entire life, for 3 days straight, and even weeks later, everytime Nadia and I talked about it, we laughed again and could barely breathe. For HOURS.What did I do in MATSUE :
We went there as a daytrip from Okayama and the curse followed us (it wasn’t over yet). The castle was hilarious because of the helmets :
The train ride, too, made us laugh. We were both looking at the landscape and passed a building. Here is how it went :
Me : *sees the building and frowns*
Nadia : *looks at me*
Me : *looks at her*
Together : I didn’t see what I think I saw, right ?
Me : I don’t know, what did you see ?
Nadia : Franponais.
Me : Did it really say “Le Café du NAVET” ? (“Turnip’s Café”)
Nadia : ….yes…
Me : OMG
What did I do in TAKAMATSU :
Mh, not a lot of things, I must say. Shopping, mostly, and discovering Megijima. Oh and of course, laughing. Franponais, again.What did I do in MATSUYAMA :
Visited the city and castle (the prettiest I saw so far). And freaked out because of THIS :Nadia looked for me for a good 15 minutes because I was too fascinated by this and she couldn’t find me in the gardens.
