A NEW MAN

Today has been a day of supporting local businesses. We went to town for Dante's haircut and later celebrated with a Japanese lunch. I promoted the lunch restaurant (Cafe Ai) on FB and here is the story of the haircut. 

There are at least five hair salons in Kamo and we went to the one that we think Toshi goes to.  The owner speaks zero English so we went in and I just said 'katto kudasai' which means something like 'cut please'.  There were almost no magazines to look at so we just pulled one out and found a picture of a young man with short hair and Dante said that looks good. 

And we got a young man with short hair!

Wow. There is lots to cut here!

I have not seen a front folding wash station before - Dante says they used to all be like that in Italy.
