Italiano - Okinawan style!

Araha Beach - Welcome!
Summer is closing in on Okinawa and so is the humidity.  I am certain in my own mind that the oppressive, moist air is the reason that the rattle in my lungs persists.  It almost makes me long for the "dry heat" of Arizona - a  land where moisture in the air generally meant that one or more of the morons in the trailer park - and Arizona is one, big trailer park - was taking a whiz out the back door.

Today I threw away four cake mixes that had followed me from the endless desert of Arizona.  All had absorbed so much moisture from the air that they literally felt like soggy bricks.


Nice apartments facing the beach

I have asked The Buddha to consider moving me to the piney woods of southwest Missouri or to the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy - someplace with four seasons and modest humidity.  I would also like the occasional thunderstorm with an accompanying lightening show.  And snow!  Oh how I miss snow!

A very nice (and expensive) Okinawan home

The ubiquitous hibisucs - they're everywhere,
they're everywhere!
But, as long as I am stuck here in paradise, I walked to the beach this afternoon and took a few pictures along the way.  Some are attached to this post.

  1. That house looks very solid. But I assume a lot of the buildings & homes there are built to withstand nature.
