A trip

OK...
A bit late, but still...
About a week ago iris and I went to a trip in the northern part of Okinawa with two friends of mine from the Karate - Vincent - from Switzerland and Edwin - born in the Dominican Republic, grew up in New York, and is married to an Okinawan woman...
So... I will tell the story with the pics:

This is on the way, a nice spot... so we took a couple of pics.



This is still on the way - a place called Hiro's coffee. Sadly, it is not that easy to get a decent coffee around here, but we stopped at that place - Hiro - the owner grows his own coffee beans and roasts them. It was real fun (and tasty).
The beautiful white flowers - coffee flowers! Did you know that? We didn't...
We also got to taste the coffee fruit - it is quite sweet - the coffee beans are inside the fruit, and are white and soft until roasted... We didn't know that too...


Now to the trip itself. I think the pictures speak for themselves...





This is the sea (although we didn't get to swim this time).



And the second part of the trip - we walked on a nice river...



With cool spider - which I tried to take pictures of (and didn't do such a good job as you can see).




That is it for now... sorry it takes me so long to update.

תמונות יפות! מה קרה לאלו מניו זילאנד ואוסטרליה ? נחמד שאתה פוגש ככה אנשים מכל מיני מקומות..

מה עם קרבות עכבישים? פעם ראיתי תוכנית והבנתי שיש תחרויות של קרבות של עכבישי סמוראי ביפן, תברר אם יש משהו אצלכם, נראה מגניב..(העכביש הזכיר לי)

Hi all
Sorry for not updating...
A long and detailed post will come soon (probably later today).

A. The wild parts in the island are mostly green trees, with streams. a real jungle. (not as crazy as in Bolivia or Brazil, but reminds it).

B. The Australian and New Zealand guys are still around, but they didnt come to this trip.

C. Didnt hear anything about spider fights... but there are place here for bull fights - two bulls fighting each other... didnt get to see it yet, though.
