We're back

Well, R and I have been back in Japan for a week now, and the week since we've gotten back has been a whirlwind week of jetlag, overtime, heat, humidity, and disbelief that August is already drawing to a close. We had an excellent time in the US (despite some airline setbacks), and I will update soon with photos.

In other news, R and I had to kill a lot of time on Saturday (due to smoke detector inspections in my management company seems to be inspecting something or other at least once a month!) and we went to a nearby park and aquarium. We had a great time despite the trying-to-squeeze-something-fun-into-the-last-weekend-of-summer-vacation crowds, but I discovered two bug bites on my legs later that night that just keep getting bigger. And bigger. And bigger! They're huge! They're also quite itchy and painful. I have no idea what bit me, but if it was a mosquito, I'm not sure how I didn't notice it because it must have been as big as a car to inflict bites this big!

On the road again

Heading to the US today for a vacation. Yay! Watch for pictures and updates when I get back.

Tokyo won't be the same

Dessert makes everyone happy
The lovely Vicky has left Tokyo today after three years to head back to the UK. It is always incredibly difficult for me to say goodbye to a friend, but I am very excited for her about the many wonderful things that surely lie ahead on her path. You will be sorely missed, Vicky!! Your smiles and kind words were always so comforting, and I will miss our dinners and your laugh. I am so glad I met you here, and can't wait to see you in the UK/US/Japan again!! xoxo
