“Hi. Look up”
A Jumbo jet descending just close to houses’ roofs from inland hills
to Hong Kong International Airport.
It’s first transit airport toward Nairobi, Kenya, in our family travel.

Its facilities were functional.
Easy of access to Transit room, where took short rest and waited for boarding announcement for flight to Colombo.

Victoria in Mahe Is., capital of Seychelles.
The island rich in white sandy beach, clear and blue sea, tropical fruits, birds in offshore small islands, and residents of sunny character.

Final destination Nairobi, capital of Kenya, after long journey with 3 transits.
It’s right on equator, but average annual temperature is about 18℃、owing to its land height of 1,600m.

3 daughters’ childhood started in this vast country full of colorful trees and wild animals, extending for memorable 5 years !

“L'amour est bleu (Love is blue)” by Paul Mauriat & His Orchestra
flowing in cabin of BOAC  night flight to London.

One of most favorite easy listening music!
Was relieved, at last, because finished business aims with vehicle agent in Ghana.

Before came to Ghana, visited Nairobi, Kampala and Lagos.
When stayed in Nairobi, could go to National Park on holidays 
to feel fresh air and see wild animals of giraffes, zebras, buffalos, elephants, lions, etc. on broad plain.

To make business trip reports together with adjustment of trip expenses,
needed hours and days, besides normal daily works in office.
It’s nothing special to business persons.

Go forward and anew with active mind!

Scenes in rooms around 50 years ago.

“What? Have to go to a police station?”

“Yes, please. We need an official certificate of no criminal record of yours, to get an entrance visa from Colombia Embassy”

A staff of Travel Agent said to me.
Went to Nishi Police Station, with reluctance, and faced police officers in gloomy room.
Needless to say, visited Sumitomo Hospital a week ago so that blood test was to be done.
Disliked shot needles most of all.

中華街で食事会
2017年08月14日 (月) | 編集 |
中華料理を外で食べることは最近、なかった。
量が多くて、いろんな種類を食べるには大勢で行かないと難しいような気がしていたからだ。
まだーむの写真展に行った後、中華街に寄ることになった。
久しぶりでとてもよかった。


中華街201708-1

We went to Yokohama Chinatown ,
where took time to find empty parking space.
It was just natural, because it was Saturday in middle of August.

Streets were very crowded where saw face, face, face,…
In front and behind heard Chinese from several groups.

At restaurant we ordered set menu and ala carte.
All tables on 2nd story were taken by family guests, and tourist groups.
It means Sichuan dishes served and selection of foodstuffs are quite good at that restaurant

Indeed, taste was generally mild.
Shrimps in chili sauce were big and round.
Small plates were replaced 3 times with new ones by waiters.

With satisfaction of lovely mouthfeel , and heavy food to go in poly bag for boys,
went back home in quiet freeway.
