Our first few days on the island were HECTIC!!! We decided to start things off right by waking up early that first morning and going with our friend KayCee to watch her coach youth softball. It was nice to get outside and relax.
We walked around a bit during the game and found our first humorous sign...Turkey Leg Dog!!! Poor guy, first he's born with a turkey leg, and then he's not even allowed to hobble on the track! Sheesh!
We watched the game for a little longer, and headed off with Jake (KayCee's husband) to go get us cell phones. Conveniently 2 of our best options had a kiosk/store in the Exchange1 mall, so we got to check that out, and compare plans (both companies had the same exact plan), phones, and service quality.
KayCee met back up with all of us, and we all headed out to lunch. By now we were starved. So we all went off base to Taj Okinawa, a place none of us had been to yet!
Kacey's Kitchen, but they are basically a snack made of rice and seasonings, sometimes fillings. The rice is mixed with herbs or veggies and rolled into typically a triangle shape by a salted hand. I've never had one I didn't like, and I particularly like the salmon filled ones.
Don't worry, I don't plan on writing our entire 3 years in such detail, I just really want to share our first few experiences on the island, and then I'll be more selective on what I bore you all with!
'til next time!!!
I describe this as the military department store. It's THE place to buy stuff you need. Depending on the size of your Exchange, you can get cloths, furniture, household supplies, gifts, tvs, etc. I think ours here is one of the largest Exchanges in the world. Don't quote me on that though.
