You must see this creative, delightful video put together by Isabelle and shared on one of my favorite blogs, Hello Sandwich. In a very short amount of time, it somehow manages to say something quite meaningful about the people, food, and culture of Japan. The "yakimo" soundtrack is a recording of a yaki-imo man--that's the guy who goes street by street selling the most fantastic roasted Japanese sweet potatoes. These guys and their little trucks (I suppose there may be some who still go around on foot with a cart) can be found rolling through neighborhoods all across Japan, mostly during the colder months of the year. The sound of the yaki-imo truck is a happy memory for my family.

By the way, I'm sorry I haven't blogged lately; I just have been a bit lacking in inspiration. I do plan to be back next week with a couple of book and magazine posts (even possibly a Magpie), and then my family be on spring holiday for a week. After that, I should have some beautiful photos of the French Riviera to share with you! Can't wait!
