I went out tonight. I went to Joe’s birthday party. I met Joe and his girlfriend last week – they were really nice, and apparently they liked me enough to invite me out. We went to a Cuban place. Joe is from Cuba. We ate and drank. I met people from all over the world. There were people from Cuba, Scotland, Australia, Argentina, Italy, Korea, and of course Japan. It was a blast – I was in shock most of the night. This just doesn’t happen to me. At least not before moving to Japan it doesn’t. It also made me excited about Susan & Olivia coming over – finding so many cultures all at once is so amazing.
We did the Cuban place, then another place with loud music, and then another place with loud music from a DJ. Then I left with Juan and his girlfriend for ramen – the perfect late night, drinking food. We ate, I slurped (!!!), and we talked. I think I might actually have dinner with them tomorrow. I learned a secret about umbrellas from them… but it’s a secret, so I can’t share.
It’s very late – 2:40a – so I guess I should go to bed. Good night all. Miss you… but I’m having fun, all the same. Can’t you come for a visit so I can show you?
