Here's another snippet - if you've ever lived in Japan during the winter, then you may have heard the yaki imo truck off in the distance. Yaki imo is a Japanese baked potato - it tastes pretty good, but it's kind of dry. Anyway, the vendors drive around in these little trucks with a stove and a recording of a guy yelling out "yaki imo - ishi yaki imo" - actually, they're baked on hot rocks (ishi means stone). The voice is really nostalgic for me, cuz I went to high school in Tokyo...
