Friday Night Dinner and Unidentified Pickled Food

On Friday night, Mike went out to a terrific yakiniku place with some co-workers. Great food. Great company. And at the restaurant, they have these sliding curtains that surround your table, making each table feel like its own room. The outside tables have windows that look out into tiny little zen gardens. It was very cool. Unfortunately, on his way home Mike had his first negative food experience in Japan. Stopping into a convenience store to pick up what he thought was a sweet gummy candy, he took one bite and it turned out to be something akin to a picked apple. Or something equally nasty. Oh well.

In other news, Ilena took her first aerobics class in Japanese, and survived!
