Goodbyes

This weekend was mainly spent with friends, and included two parties for a teacher who is leaving to go back to the US to get her teaching certification.

I can pick up the Japanese teacher because she’s absolutely tiny.

A lot of us played games after dinner.

We played a Namedropper-type game, which had 4 rounds instead of three. On the fourth round, you had to pose a member from the opposing team to get your team to guess.

Saturday, we went with the Japanese teacher to Love Pacific Cafe. For lunch, you can get a set that includes a burger, a make your own salad bar, and a soup.

They had a new burger this time – the miso katsu veggie burger. Yum! After eating, Satomi took me to a lingerie store and helped me get measured to see what my Japanese bra size was. So, I got to buy cute underwear, too! Yay!

That evening, we met up with other friends for dinner and drinks. It was a really good day!

Today, I took some pictures of my garden.
