Taco Party and Hanging Out Downtown

This weekend was filled with hanging out. I had a sore throat, and that totally put a damper on the hike I wanted to do. Instead, I slept a ton. But we still managed to have fun!

Friday, we had two teachers from our school over!

The three of us with our tofu tacos. I made these tacos based off of Mad Mex’s tofu tacos. They are delicious, and include tomato-cooked rice, slow cooker beans, glazed tofu, avocado cream, pico de gallo, and sour cream! Yum!!

Satomi and Hannah wanted to do my hair and makeup. My hair’s super thin, so I had to dampen it. 😀

Here I am, mid-makeover.

Both Hannah and Satomi were like, “It’s hard to tie an obi!” So, here i am demonstrating. I don’t think I convinced anyone that it’s not hard.

Satomi is preparing to spin me out of my obi.

I spun and then fell to the ground. LOL.

Saturday, we totally hung out and relaxed like all day. Today, we biked to Osu and had lunch. We also saw a “No Nukes” parade. It was protesting the use of nuclear power in Japan.

There were interesting costumes in the parade, such as this giraffe.

Another interesting costume-wearer, in front of a “No More Hibakusha” sign. Hibakusha are the victims from nuclear disasters.

After watching the parade, we walked over to Sakae. On our way there, we noticed Hakurinji, a temple.

Later, we went to St. Moritz, a cafe in Sakae. We got the apple pie. It was yummy, but nothing like American apple pie.

Well, that’s all for this weekend!
