The One about the MarchoNYC Downtown M-852

As I have Ray-Ban’s for my reading eye glasses, for whenever I need them while driving, I needed another frame.  Something I can just keep in the vehicle, so I opted for something more affordable and cool.

The One about Osanbashi in Yokohama

Yokohama is one of the most beautiful cities I have been to numerous times. And the port city is a popular destination and not far from Tokyo.
