Thanks to everyone who offered up instances of their experience with rude and/or embarrassing behavior at meetings. This could all be fodder for a new series. Keep ’em coming!
Today was our most Japanese day in recent memory. After lunch, Akemi and I took a walk to our local Japanese convenience store and picked up (No, not that ninja plate I’ve been eyeing for months) but rice crackers, noodles, and assorted pocky sticks. Before that, however, we strolled through Trinity Bellwood Park so that Akemi could take in the cherry blossoms. Natsukashii!
Then we had a very special Kyoto-style dinner courtesy of Chef Jon Klip.
Tonight, we’ll have some tea and turn in only, but only after our evening shower – as is the Japanese way.
Tomorrow, it’s back to Western tradition: fried chicken, Farm Boy, and maybe an afternoon nap.
