Fried Chicken and Sushi 179 and 180

My first taste of Japanese ramen was truly divine!  I couldn't believe something so delicious was also so easily affordable.  This series of strips really is based on truth.  I enjoyed going to a small ramen shop in Shimamoto owned by my student's father.  He was a very energetic man that always made me feel welcome. I could literally walk there in three minutes.  Dangerous, I know!  I didn't go there nearly as often as I should have.  For Karl, this is going to be a new hang out spot so expect to see him back at the ramen shop again in the future!

Fried Chicken and Sushi 178 Going out for Ramen

I really didn't know much about ramen when I moved to Japan.  It was just the cheap meal you buy at the grocery store, fourty eight packs for a dollar!  I remember being so amazed by the taste of actual authentic ramen that it's almost impossible for me to eat any instant brands anymore.
