Today was the last day of the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco’s Japantown, and I walked in the big parade with my friend’s daughter and her elementary school friends. We wore yukata and got to borrow these cool orange umbrellas, which saved us from heatstroke. It was an unusually ridiculously hot day.
The float behind us hand a bunch of beauty queens on it. Pretty.
Me and my walking mate. She was a way better sport about it than I was.
