The weekend was great because Mark's cousin came to visit! There was a flight mix-up on Saturday but they eventually met up and saw a little bit of Tokyo. They were hampered by Michael's eleventy-billion pound spear-fishing gear but they were determined!
|Kamakura temples and Wisteria|
|Farm to You. I love it! So much that I took a disgustingly ridiculous arty sunglasses picture. And yet, I include it...|
|I finally ate a shrimp cracker but the wind broke it while my picture was being taken. Sads!|
On Monday, I went to work and the guys went to Kyoto. No fair! They had a great time and a really ambitious itinerary. It was fun to live vicariously through them while I was getting slammed with consults thanks to an increase in consults from the Fleet. It's nice to be busy but I wish it was a little slower since I'd like to read more for fellowship!
Socially, I went out Monday for Amanda's birthday dinner. Tuesday was an awesome book club with a delicious taco bar (Cinco de Mayo, so wild and crazy!). Wednesday, I went up to Yokohama to meet up with Michael and SMS for dinner at Charcoal Green Grill after they spent the afternoon cheering on the Yokohama Baystars in the outfield stands (crazy fandom reigns there!).
Today (Friday), I have a half clinic day and a housing appointment to set up our final move-out! Then it's off to Western Japan where we will (hopefully) see luminescent squid and Kanazawa as a short trip before my TDY starts next week in Iwakuni and Sasebo.
