We skipped Design Festa this year, but decided to go to the Motor Show held every two years. I’m not super interested in it, but Kenji wanted to go, so we got a hotel room and planned for a weekend stay. We went on one of the first days, so it was extremely crowded; too many people for my tastes, I ended up more often than not against a wall out of the press of people, waiting for Kenji to come get me to go onto the next area. But there were some interesting things there.

Cars and tractors and trucks, oh my! I want to drive a pink polkadot truck.

Let’s be honest, Kenji was most interested in the motorcycles
