Visitors from another planet, part 1

No, not me, the one in the middle!

We've had three recent encounters here in Osaka with three entirely different species. This first one ("Kar-Yee") came to us from "California" by way of ......Hong Kong. Despite claiming to not know how to wear a scarf correctly, she was extremely friendly and well-trained. Although she only appeared in our midst for a morning & lunch, the impact of her visit is still being registered on our geiger-counters (particularly on Yoko's). In her wake she even left some tasty "snacks" picked up in the previous planet. (We've finished them already, you can't have any.)


Like Hezekiah with the Babylonians, we perhaps showed her too much of our strategic defenses in Osaka...

Kar-Yee yaki

And she was very interested in our native food supply as well... (okonomiyaki!)

Train Kar

She saw our transportation systems. Hmm, what's she smiling about? She's up to something...

Train Coupling

Ah well, her smiling was infectious. And I confess we'd be very pleased to have her come visit our planet again anytime, even if it should compromise terrestrial security.

Stay tuned in the days to come for parts 2 and 3 of close encounters of the Osakan kind...!

    Well, here's to trusting that Hezekiah's punishment for his arrogance won't be visited upon you, lol...

    Haha, well, if more friends like Kar-Yee were to visit us way out here, that would be "punishment" indeed. We might never get over it. The joy might finally be our death sentence. Alas, alas!
