Jari's Visit

Kev's best friend from high school Jari is here visiting us for about a week. He arrived last Saturday and sadly, the weather here on Okinawa has been less than stellar. With the Veteran's Day holiday, Kevin took a few more days off from work and was able to take Jari around the sites. They went to the Nago Pineapple farm as well as the Churaumi Aqaurium. On Tuesday, the rain let up a little, so we all drove down to Naha to visit the World War II Memorial Museum. From the museum, I think we all have a greater understanding of the role Okinawa played in the Pacific during World War II.

On another note, it's funny to watch Jari try all the different food here. He's pretty adventurous and is willing to try anything.

This coming weekend, we are all heading to a small island off the main island of Okinawa, an island called Yoron. We will be staying at the Pricia Resort there. I'll try to get some pictures!
