Etchy meets the All-female Scooter Gang!

I just got back home, its been a long day... I was at the Regal Beagle until about 3:30. I was riding my bicycle down the street, as usual there are a lot of people walking and driving around at these hours, including lots of customized cars and bikes, etc. Nothing suprising...

Nagoya Castle

After the tour ended yesterday, I took the subway over to the Nagoya Castle, which is one of the few sights worth visiting in this town, from what I've been told. They close early on fall/winter days, so I had to hurry through.
