NOT the travel diary of Shunshou the Mighty.

There was a Japanese cultural fair at the San Diego Buddhist Temple today. (Three cheers for the bus system here, by the way.) Very neighborhood-ish, relaxed, but also well-organized--like any good church bazaar. I love the genre.

However, most church bazaars I've been to don't include strawberry-filled mochi. I approve of strawberry-filled mochi.

The taiko drumming was a seriously impressive full-body experience, reverberating as it did off the temple building. The vibrations set off car alarms in the parking lot.

A bad picture of one of the other performing groups, taken more to capture the charm of the big BINGO sign on the balcony than anything else. Church bazaars are church bazaars are church bazaars, ne?

Tomorrow, the institute's classes get serious, and I have to make a decision about the kind of curriculum-development project I want to do during the next three weeks. Part of me is toying (heh, heh) with the idea of finding some Japanese literature that deals with dolls--I mean, it has to exist, right?--and putting together an Intro to Lit class unit with that serious stuff, cultural background, some of the interesting doll-related manga, and . . . well, bringing out Shunshou for the final project presentation here. Must think on't.

Why isn't there an LJ mood icon for "sunburned"?
