I took this photo in a small roadside restaurant near Mount Aso, in Kumamoto, Japan. We cooked our food around traditional fireplaces sunken in the floor (irori), and made friends with a rowdy group of farmers who were drinking next to us. This Talking Heads song captures the energy of that whole afternoon.
