New Blog!

Hey there! I've decided to continue blogging at a different blog. The MEXT archives and some of my travel posts will remain here, but I'll be moving some stuff over. Hope to see you there!

Saga International Balloon Fiesta Recap: Day 3

Day 3 has some of my favourite morning photos, and some of the funniest photos of the entire trip. I suppose since it was the mid-point in my volunteering stint, it would be the best part.

Morning Competition

The sunrise for the third day was THE BEST. The panoramas I took actually turned out pretty well (I think)

And I hope this photo conveys what it was like walking around as the balloons took off. It felt a little like what I imagine Alice might have felt in Wonderland (when she was tiny)

And this was the day I learnt where going with silhouettes instead of trying to get everything in colour may be a better choice.

But, this year's reflection photos aren't as good as last year's.

Hope you enjoyed these photos!

Scarecrow Fair

And today was also the day where I managed to persuade my classmates to go to the scarecrow fair with me. While it isn't officially sanctioned/run by the organisers, it's right next to the bus stop and station. Plus, it's hilarious!

I mean, these were among the first scarecrows that we saw:

It's Abe and Trump, if you couldn't recognise them. And it's a lot tamer than last year's. 
 But don't worry, it's not all political. Most of the scarecrows were based on popular culture.

I love that there are two versions of the scarecrow from Howl's Moving Castle. Both of them are really well done too!

I think the yellow thing is Pikachu?

And um, this is Hillary and Trump. See if you can tell which is which.

Godzilla and his tiny arms.


After we took a look at the scarecrows and laughed our heads off, we went to the food area where I found the cutest chocolate bananas ever!

I had to buy one after looking at them.

He even has a tail!!

Plus I won an extra banana, which I ended up giving away.

And I would be posting photos of the afternoon competition, but I had a headache and only managed to grab this from the container window:

Luckily for the balloon, he didn't touch the ground so there wasn't a point deduction.

I wonder if you all are enjoying the photos? Because I have two more days, but I'm not sure if I'm being annoying or if you enjoy these photos.
