Daily Prompt: Menagerie.

I’ve never been much of a dog person and I’m allergic to cats. However, I’ve been a big fan of Siamese Fighting Fish for some time. ¬†I haven’t had one for some time, because I sometimes spend a few days away now and then. Might reconsider soon. Here’s a pic of my last one:

Me Eating a Tiny Scorpion in Beijing

I did actually study abroad in Hong Kong for five months. I would have stayed longer if I’d been able to. I stayed in residence and though I met some great people and had a lot of fun, I’d probably like to have my own place to live. I think I drove my roommate a little batty the last time, though we are still good friends, right Kristel?

If I could do it again, I’d do Japan. I’ve always loved the Asian countries and it’s definitely on my bucket list. I’d ride the trains, eat sushi as much as possible, train in the same martial arts that I do here and finally pick up the Japanese language.

I’d visit Mount Fuji and the shrine of the 47 Ronin. I’d travel to Naha, Osaka, Nagasaki and Okinawa. It would take me probably years to do it, but I’d do it all. Might still do it, just as a travel. But who knows what the future holds?
