Telephone lines and kiwi vines. Click on the picture to enlarge it. That's a stop sign in the bottom left hand corner. Check this post for a picture of this kind of stop signs. And here for another kind.
The kiwi is over a carport. Check this post for more pictures of the carport.
It is still the rainy season. We are having overcast days, sunny days and rainy days. Yesterday was sunny. Today is overcast. We need some sun!

Our vegetable stand man pulled some onions and tied them together to sell. That dark plastic thing is a shower stool. Some people use them to sit while they wash themselves before getting into the bathtub. He's using it for a field stool.
That's a bundle of dried onion stalks. He used them to tie the onions together.
He has a lot of them!

There's more construction on our street. This time they put down this mat to show us where to walk.
Our vegetable stand man returned from his field carrying a load of onions. He rode his bike through the construction to get to his vegetable stand on the other side. Those kanji painted on the street tell drivers to watch and slow down. There is a park on the left.
Here is a post about another sign painted on the street. And the machine that painted it.

This wall has a different design for vents near the ground.
This wall has diamond shaped vents near the top.
