A Friday night in Marugame
Last night I had the most fun I've had in a long time. After a loooong day at work (why do kindergarteners take off their clothes randomly?), I met my friend Mike (from training!) at the station. He lives in Kyoto prefecture, so we try to see each other every month or so.
We had a good old Marugame time. The party started at my place, with silly music videos and cheese and crackers. Isabel joined in the fun, and we all headed to the only nice bar in Marugame, for Gin Tonics and White Russians. The friendly owner even shared a bottle of wine with us. I then showed Mike the best ramen shop in Marugame, where we feasted on the noodles with delightful kimchi. We ended the party at 3am, sitting on the dark stairs of the museum, listening to the silence of dear old Marugame (and a distressed sounding kitten in the distance).
I love simple, fun night like that, in good company. Isabel, what am I going to do without you?!
Now, I'm off to some island off the coast to go camping.... oh dear. I think I'll be the only girl sporting red nail polish and accessorizing her bikini. Sigh.
