The weekend was pretty mellow. I recovered from traveling, cleaned up the house and made one field trip up to Yokohama. My friend Adam organized a huge birthday adventure starting with "Oktoberfest" in Yokohama followed by the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo. I was on call so I met up with everyone in Yokohama to be social. I loved the Oktoberfest and look forward to the next one. The German band leading a bunch of (mostly) Japanese was pretty awesome. Next time, I'll try not to be on call so I can kampai!
I parted ways with the Tokyo-bound crew (too far away from base when on-call) and walked from Red Brick Warehouse to Yokohama Station. The walk was nice and there were several nice shops along the way. Humpty Dumpty was like Anthropologie but with a much more unfortunate name. I also had my first choco cro and as you can imagine from the name, it was delicious. A chocolate croissant sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. Amazing!
I went shopping in Sogo, located within Yokohama station. They have a LOFT on the 7th floor which is filled with awesome stuff. It's like Target on steroids- none of its needed until I see and have to have it!
Then I went home and for the rest of the weekend, just hung out and cleaned the apartment to get ready for SMS' arrival. Sagoy!
