Tourists in Our Own City Part 3

My friend and I never got to watch Sherlock Holmes because the cinemas here didn’t have it yet. We had a fleeting craving for the city, if only for us to watch Sherlock Holmes. Oh well.tourists in our own city

There was only one thing left to do: binge on food. Doughnuts, pretzels, takoyaki  – all in one day.

We also dropped by McDonald’s.

It’s like they wanted to stick to their “script” and were incapable of carrying on an otherwise human conversation. Their cookie cutter responses reminded us of automated robots.

As we were waiting for a bus home, we saw coconuts and had a sudden craving for coconut juice. Yum!

We rode a bus home. We ate more food, watched DVDs, and risked getting bitten by neighborhood dogs. friends
