Japan / Texas Swap Complete!

The US West gets a little more Far East!

Thanks to the kindness of a GimmeSwapper in Japan, Austin Texas is now much more kawaii as we enjoy cute socks and panda paper. The adzuki bean/matcha tea flavored Kit-Kats are minty fluorescent green and, uhm, may be an acquired taste, but the sushi cookbook and Amazon Sparkling Cola Candy rock!
We tip our cowgirl hat and offer a Western-style bow to our friends for broadening our horizons as well as our hips.

The Far East thanks the Wild West!

As a fellow recipient of a package from Lori, I'm sure you can understand how floored I was by the sheer size of the box, not to mention all the great things inside. I already polished off a lot of the candy (conspicuously missing from the picture is the Moonpie, which was eaten upon opening the box) and featured the hot watermelon straws as the Japanese Candy Friday (Mexican Candy Edition) on my website. Quite a few of the foreigners in my town are from the Mexican-food-friendly states of California, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico, so I am planning on hosting a salsa party soon!
Check out more words and pics here and here.

replica handbags can be easily carried along with your other important travel accessories. The size will also fit into a fanny replica handbags uk worn around your waist or a small camera bag or shoulder tote. The nice colors available insure you will spot the case when you put replica bags down and make it easy to locate inside your bag.
