I usually run along this river in the morning, and the other day it was so pretty I decided to come back in the afternoon and read in the sun. I pretty much blew away in the wind, but I got a few nice pictures of 春一番, as Kohei (Yes, Kohei! Scroll down) called it, or “the first of Spring” – which apparently includes a lot of wind and a few rainy days.
Ok now, for any friends back home who were concerned that Kohei might have fallen off of the planet – he is alive and well and living in Tokyo now! We met up in Ginza and found this old temple (?)…bridge..something or other and then went to an Izakaya. I tried all kinds of delicious little dishes and also shochu for the first time. Well, it turns out shochu and I don’t get along very well. After dinner we went to see that silly Dragonball movie, and I slept through the ENTIRE thing – like, previews to credits. Haha….well, anyone know, was the movie as hilarious as I thought it would be? Should I try again someday?
