Sausages

For a few days now the Japanese media has been saying that as from July 26, those wishing to travel abroad can apply for a vaccination passport. The only proof that I have had two shots is a very Japanese document that I doubt would cut the mustard in most immigration controls.

See what I mean.

Today is July 26 so I rush up to the Ginowan Town Hall to see what happens next. After some mime, they understand what I want and hand me a map of where this process is being dealt with.

Help

With the help of Google translate, I finally Sherlock Holmes my way to the location.

It is a medical information service lost in the back streets of Ginowan. I am so proud that I found it.

No one speaks English but they produce an iPad with an interpreter inside. I explain my needs to this person and he subsequently lets the happy Okinawa folk know what the fat, sweaty, foreigner wants.

I fill in some forms and there is a air of excitement in the room. I am clearly the first client.

I wonder what this is.

We have a lot of fun and jokes. 30 minutes later, I leave with the first Vaccine Passport issued in Ginowan. A real achievement.

Yay!

By the way, the typhoon has finally moved on. This was not the worst typhoon by a long shot but it was probably the longest. Heavy rain and high winds from Tuesday to Monday. The boat is OK.

I visit Kinjo sensei and his wonderful colleagues to have my stitches taken out and a temporary crown placed over my implants. We have lots of fun, such good people.

He gives me a pack of Irish sausages. I give him a bottle of Glen Scotia

I love sausages! How did he know this? I wonder what else I revealed during the operation under the influence of half a pint of novocaine.

    I expect you were droning on about the “sausage wars”, currently being fought by our mendacious premier twit and the EU over supplies of British sausages to NI. I believe that Irish sausages can enter NI without hindrance.

    Well he got the better of the deal (sort of), but you are still thriving in Japan, as is my son Matthew (who has married Sawako …they seem SO very happy). I miss all three of you, and am happy for you at the same time!💞 ~Rachel
