Most Memorable Wedding Gift Ever (for us and our neighbors)

Our friends Charity & Craig were sure they couldn't find the perfect wedding gift for us until their recent travels to Nepal. Obviously, they know us well enough not to buy us crystal candy dishes, but we never expected this:
In Nepal, the Narsingha is a traditional celebration horn. They are played in pairs at weddings. Charity & Craig were so taken with their tradition and sound, that they bought not just one, but two, narsingha and a special handmade carrying case to bring them back to Tokyo.

This is their inaugural Tokyo performance. The horns echoed all the way to Shibuya and back, waking the neighbors, who yelled at us (in English) to quiet down.
