It was a day well spent around Naha! However, I felt the evil jet-lag cursing me again. My eyelids were so heavy I could sleep standing like a tree. Yawning all the way back to the hotel I took a shower and an emergancy nap but, soon found myself waking up in the middle of the night hearing my own stomach growling at me. Despite having had a full dinner a few hours beforehand, it told me to go play fetch. And fetch it was!
I took a short stroll down to Family Mart and picked up a random vibrant coloured looking can of something fizzy and rice balls. I didn’t even look at what I was buying. During checkout I was prompted to answer if I was of legal age on the screen, then it hit me ‘It’s not the rice! It’s the can you fool!’ I thought to myself as I took a quick peek over my shoulders. A line had already started to form, I technically do qualify for the liquid, so under pressure I tapped the YES button and went with it.
I double-checked the contents and yes, indeed it reads beer and osake. I don’t drink alcohol very often, and never liked the taste of beer. To be honest this wasn’t at all bad. It’s not very bitter or too strong, and was very refreshing in the humid weather. Plus! It went down perfectly with the rice and I slept like a baby.
