It's appropriate that Andrew's favorite kabob stand is under a big maid cafe sign.
This is the happiness Andrew experiences when eating a kabob.
Japanese version of a kabob does look yummy.
Akihabara in the daytime- way more fun than at night.
We went to a maid cafe in the Don Quijote building. It's called the At Home Cafe because they pretend you're coming home and they are your maids. Techinically, you're not allowed to take pictures in a maid cafe but this is strange because there are maids promoting the cafes in the street, and because there are promotional videos on youtube.

You might experience disorientation after this- especially if you're a New Yorker.
We decided to round out our second Akihabara visit with a FuRyu photobooth. We found one in the basement of an arcade. You take some pictures which the machine automatically photoshops- giving you makeup and bigger eyes so if you're a Westerner you look a little alien-like. Then you have additional editing choices when you exit the booth like backgrounds, text, and stickers. However all the editing had Japanese directions so we gave up after a while.

We got a purple heart background on this one.
But we couldn't figure out how to decorate this one. Except for the floor.
Finally it was naptime! (Or Sunday night bedtime in the US, depending on your point of view.)
