There are moments being an expat when you think to yourself, Why am I here again? Oh, I don't know, maybe you go into a bar and order a margarita and a plate of buffalo wings and they say, Huh? Or perhaps you get the third degree from someone you don't even know because you forgot to wear shoes to retrieve your mail.
And then there are moments like this:
The above is a Japanese band called Yura Yura Teikoku. The song is called "Yakousei no Ikimono Sanbiki"..."Three Nocturnal Creatures". The dance is most likely a version of Awa Odori, my absolute favorite Japanese dance. It sounds like I'd get sick of it, but I haven't yet. For now it just makes me very, very happy. I mean deep down I-wanna-dance happy!
