|It may be September, but we definitely needed these. The temperature was in the upper 90s.|
|A shot of the crowd ; a traditional Japanese tea ceremony being demonstrated.|
|So many noms!!! Ramune, pastry rolls & kakigori ( a Japanese snow-cone like treat). |
All so delicious!I brought the Pastry Roll home to share with Jer.
|I treated myself to some BBQ Unagi (eel) and it so absolutely delicious!|
|There were so many vendors with tons of food options. Above is the vendors that I got my Kakigori and Pastry roll from. I can find many of those snacks in local grocery stores here in Dallas. I jumped on those pastry rolls though.|
|There were people of all ages in Kimonos and other traditional dress. |
A few cosplayers too, though I thought that to be silly.

I had such a great time, but the heat was too great and I came home so exhausted. The day before my friends and I did a scavenger hunt downtown. It involved much running and we all got a bit dehydrated. I think I'll be taking it easy for the next few days.
Tonight is the start of Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement. I'm going to eat a huge meal for lunch and dinner to prepare me for the 24-hour fast that I begin at Sundown. So please, no one post about food on their blog tomorrow. I'll totally NOT be looking at it. hehe.
