I guess the weather took my misery to heart and cooled off considerably this weekend. It was absolutely lovely, I actually got chilly during the night and had to use a blanket! And when Roomie and I went to the festival on Sunday, it was perfect temperature-wise, and cloudy but no rain. I wish it would be like that all summer. It is cloudy still today but it's definitely getting warmer again. Have the fan on my right now.
Now some pics from the weekend. We were watching the mikoshi parade (same one as last year), and I was wondering if the same group that let me join them last year would be there again. I was looking for their yellow sign, but they had a blue one this year which I didn't see, until all of a sudden the guy leading the mikoshi was running over to Roomie and I, grabbing our wrists, and telling us to "Come on, come on!" before throwing us into the middle of their mikoshi-carrying group. A few of the people recognized me from last year, and one guy even remembered my name!
