Gone again / Encore partie

Posted on 4/3/2008 by Myriam Moret

I'm leaving again tomorrow. Taking a break from the "ordinary", I'll be hopping on a plane to beautiful Okinawa Island in the morning. No acces to the internet at the hotel because I'm a cheap ass and wanted to keep all my money for scuba diving so I'm telling you "bai-bai" until Thursday.

I was hoping to be able to post something on all the places I've seen in the past few weeks, but I ramble too much and I'm quite slow typing and getting all the pics together so it'll be a little later for Hiroshima/Miyajima, and Himeji.

Not much to say about Tokyo Disney Sea, I didn't get to see Mickey Mouse and that was kind of a bummer. Nothing of huge interest either. They probably spend more money on decor than North Korea on military. If I was to go back, it would be for a hunt of the hidden Mickeys, Almost on every construction, Disney movies and Disney related stuff there are hidden Mickey Mouse shapes and the finding of those has now become a very serious hobby for many.

A sunday in Harajuku was also quite fun, I got to see the Rockabillies at their best. Not many of the very cool cosplayers (just Google it) that used to flock there... I think that sadly, this is slowly becoming a thing of the past. But it was nonetheless great... If I was to live here permanently, I'd hang out with the Rockabilies on Sundays and chainsmoke and drink Asahi beer dress in black leather :p

Also some pics from the Gyoza Stadium in Ikebukuro... Enjoy!


Je pars encore demain, je prends un break du "train-train quotidien" et au matin je m'embarque dans un avion vers la magnifique ile d'Okinawa. Pas d'acces à internet à l'hotel car j'suis cheap et je voulais garder tout mon argent pour la plongée sous-marine. Je vous dis donc "baï-baï" jusqu'a jeudi prochain.

J'esperais pouvoir faire des entrés sur tous les endroits que j'ai visité dans les dernières semaines mais je jase trop et je suis lente à taper et à formater les photos donc ça ira un peu plus tard pour Hiroshima/Miyajima et Himeji.

Pas grand chose à dire à propos de Tokyo Disney Sea, j'ai pas vu Mickey Mouse, c'étais un peu un désapointement. Rien qui a vraiment capturé mon intérêt non plus. Ils dépensent probablement autant sur les décors que la Corée du Nord en budget militaire. Si j'y retournais ce serais probablement pour faire la "chasse aux Mickey cachés". Sur pratiquement toute les constructions, dans les films de Disney et dans les trucs liés a Disney, il y à des formes de Mickey Mouse cachés. Chercher et trouver les Mickeys est devenu un sérieux hobby pour beaucoup de gens.

Un dimanche à Harajuku étais assez amusant, les Rockabillies étaient à leur meilleur. Pas beaucoup des cool costume-players (gens qui s'habillent comme des personnages de dessin animés ou comme leurs idoles de groupes musicaux "visual kei") qui se retrouvaient là en grands nombre avant. Je crois que c'est tristement en train de devenir un truc du passé... C'étais quand même interessant. Si j'habitais ici en permanence je me tiendrais avec les Rockabillies le dimanche et je fumerais des cigarettes à la chaine en buvant de la bière Asahi habillée de cuir noir :p.

Aussi quelques photo du Gyoza Stadium à Ikebukuro... Enjoy!

The terrifying toilet at Gyoza Stadium... When you close the door, the thing talks in the scariest voice and light flashes from its eyes and mouth. It shocked me into forgeting I even had to go in the first place.

La terrifiante toilette du Gyoza Stadium... Quand on ferme la porte, ça parle avec la voix la plus effrayante et des lumieres flashent de sa bouche et ses yeux. Ça m'en a fait oublier mon envie.

The Rockabillies... some of them have been doing this for years. Most of them hold regular jobs and just go all out on Sundays... Like going to the Church of Rock 'n Roll :p

Les Rockabillies... Il y en a qui fonr ça depuis des années. La plupart on des boulot bien normaux et le dimanche ils sortent leur cuir... come pour aller a l'Église du Rock 'n Roll :p

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog! Billige olympique lyonnais drakt
