Peko and Zous

Waiting in Ueno for the Zou’s playmates

This morning, we trundled the Zous off to Ueno to play with some friends. The 9 of them (3 people and 6 animals) were a bit late coming from the far side of town, so Tod took my picture while I stood there holding three stuffed friends. You can try to imagine the odd looks you get when you are standing outside a busy train station cuddling a giant elephant. Not a single person stopped, but there were a lot of sly smiles and little bows.

It might have helped that my hair’s finally long enough to pull off my neck and out of my eyes. Sachiko says I look like Peko-chan, the cartoon spokesgirl for Fujiya’s candy classic, Milky. Tracey agrees with great glee and laughter.
