We went to see our friend Deke a few weeks ago at the fabulous Balajo nightclub. I've alsways wanted to go there. I had peeked inside a few times but never organised an occasion to go. It is a little jewel. It seems as if nothing has changed since the 1930's. The history is pretty cool too, it was owned or is owned now by wrestlers.It was created when dance halls were in their heyday. I can see lots of winks to the apache dance in the decor. You have to see it for yourself to appreciate. I want to move in or else decorate my house like the Balajo!
The Ball Populair is a cool part of past french culture. I love it when ever I come across images in films or the vestiges that rest in Paris.
Fanny came to get tattooed and she did a little photo report and sent me the images. We sure had fun that day! The tattoo goes around her upper thigh. It's not finished yet, although it does look good red and black. There will be lots of colors, it was just too much to stand in one session.
Cat brioche. It was just slightly sweet, delicious, and so cute!
Green tea and strawberry bubble tea with soft serve ice cream.
Candy store in Kyoto.
We found a fast food healthy food restaurant and the desert was carrot spinach! It was really good.
Breakfast in Kyoto.
This was a rice flour based sweet ball with plum sauce in the center. The leaf was just a wrapper as it is very sticky. I wish I knew the name and I also wish I could eat them whenever I wanted. I adored this little treat!
Fruit pie restaurant in the Kyoto train station. We didn't get to try any, we weren't hungry.
Here's some photos of the cracker store in Shimokitazawa. It was so beautiful in it's vintage goodness!
Packaged Bento boxes at the train station. These were quite expensive, but I should have bought one anyway. Everyone brought their lunches and were eatting on the train. There weren't diner cars like we're used to in Europe.
At the Nishiki market in Kyoto.
