I went back to work way later than I meant to so I ended up staying late to make up the work. I would have stayed later but then the network went down completely. Well, I guess that was that. I texted SMS to tell him I was on my way. He was out at the yakitori place near our local train station and he asked me to join him. When I went in, I saw that he had made friends with four Japanese construction workers who were very into arm-wrestling. They were really nice and we had fun talking to them and a really nice lady next to our group. SMS and I really intrigued them because I don't think many white people go in there. Although everyone was super-nice, it's definitely a Nihongo-only place so you need at least survival Japanese+ to navigate. Sometimes it's funny to me when I'm in a place near Yokosuka and people are surprised to see an American. My life is so base-focused that I think, "Well, there's sort of a base nearby" but really, the base isn't all that big relative to the overall population density so sometimes, we're a novelty even if the base "Little America" atmosphere feels so close.

So, that was the weekend! Not too much out-of-the-ordinary is planned for this week at work. Paperwork, clinic, OR and a host nation emergency medicine conference on Friday. Should be fun!
