I kept warm for the rest of the time, wanting to avoid the train delays. By Sunday, the sun came out and the spring-like temperatures made most of the snow melt. So quick! February just makes me want to stay under the blankets and sip frothy lattes, which is what I've been doing lately- until spring comes.
I also had a delicious meal at an Okinawa izakaya. My favourite Okinawa specialty is umi budo, which literally means 'grapes of the sea'. It's a type of seaweed that's shaped like mini-grapes, and the texture is really crunchy- it just pops in the mouth. I also love a fruit named goya, which is a bitter melon. I hope to visit Okinawa soon, but to be honest I'd rather go to Hokkaido first. I'm scared I'd like Hokkaido too much and never come back, though.
