New backyard findings (Andrew arrives)
After picking up Andrew from the airport, my brother drove us through downtown Cincinnati and Covington. We went through streets we'd never seen before and made our way up the hill to Devou Park to see the skyline from the Kentucky side of the river. We descended the hill and headed to Sawyer Point where we walked through the annual Midwest Black Family Runion. I'd never been before and wanted to see a part of Cincinnati that I rarely get to experience in Japan. A dance contest, some free styling, lots of street food. I miss this voice when I'm on the other side of the Pacific. We returned home and got some Chinese carry-out to accompany a Ghibli Studio film, Castle in the Sky. Family and friends. Another two weeks of American Midwest.
