Katrina's Visit


Shinjuku, Jamie, Sam

Being born in the same small Australian town as Brad Pitt, Jamie has spent much of his life fending off questions about he and Brad's early life as "Mates". Unable to avoid the constant questions and comparisons to Brad, Jamie fled Australia and has found peace in the sleepy Japanese hamlet of Oami. As an English teacher (funny huh!) Jamie has been able to spread the glorious Australian form of English know as "Occa".
A somewhat uneducated brute, Jamie was expelled from the school of life......twice.

Sam's mum came to visit in mid June for my 30th birthday. She was here for a week and we all had a great time. I'm not sure how she managed to get 4kg of steak through customs but nevertheless, a fabulous meal was had by all. Katrina was enamoured with the Daiso (100yen shop)which is similar to the reject shop or the suburban $2 shop. The biggest difference is that the Daiso actually has stuff you want to buy and won't fall apart between the cash register and the boot of your car. I think she went to about 6 or 7 different stores and came out loaded down with several bags each time.
Below are some pics we took while she was here.
