North-Eastern Amami-Ooshima
the area where Fumie's grandmother lived before WWII

As I wrote before, it was often windy and rainy during our New-Year's trip to Amami, in southern Japan, but the weather was quite dynamic and squall might be immediately followed by brilliant sunshine.

Within 10 minutes of each of these photos being taken, it was raining.

Well, at least you’ve been well prepared for unpredictable weather, since you grew up in northern Ohio.

Your photos and comment about Fumie’s grandmother, got me to thinking about the sadness of wars. I am sure there is something profound I should be able to say, I just don’t know what it is.
