Fried Chicken and Sushi 414 Let her in

It may be the polite thing to do but it's certainly not the easiest.  I really enjoyed drawing the lady cut in so quickly in the second panel.  She must be a pro.  IF YOU'RE LOVING MY COMIC, PLEASE CLICK HERE AND LIKE MY FACEBOOK FAN PAGE!

Fried Chicken and Sushi 413 The elderly lady that cut in!

I'm always surprised with how normal it is for elderly women in Japan to cut in front of you in line.  It took some getting used to at first but it seems like people just respect the fact that they've earned the right to do what they want.  Have you experienced this before?

Fried Chicken and Sushi 412 The egg shocker!

When you're adjusting to living in another country, sometimes you just have to accept that there are some things they do better than your home country.  I'm sure there are many more important things than making tasty eggs but...this is a comic strip after all.  CLICK HERE TO LIKE MY FACEBOOK FAN PAGE!

Fried Chicken and Sushi 408 Kabuki Shakin'!

This one really happened!  There was an earthquake during the Kabuki performance I went to!  I couldn't believe it!  It was actually the first of many earthquakes I would be in while living in Japan.  The actors were so cool to just pause in the middle of their poses and wait for the quake to finish and then continue on.  I couldn't stop thinking about how crazy the earthquake felt and how unsure I was of how much stronger it would get while it was shaking.  After the performance we checked the news and they said it was 4.5 on the Richter scale so not a huge earthquake but for me it was pretty big!  IT WOULD BE BIG IF YOU CLICK HERE AND LIKE MY FACEBOOK FAN PAGE!

Fried Chicken and Sushi 407 The Beauty of Kabuki

I remember when my co-teacher took me to see Kabuki and, as an artist, I was so amazed by the entire experience!  Just like Karl said in the comic, the costumes, sets and makeup were beautiful and the acting and posing was very powerful.  It felt nice to experience Japanese history and really feel the culture during the performance.  Japanese people can have trouble understanding what the actors are saying because they use old forms of the language.  They speak in a special "Kabuki" sing song like way that can make it difficult to hear the words easily.  If you visit Japan I encourage you to see a Kabuki play!
