So I'm back in town after a wonderful & amazing time in SF. I have no trouble feeling right at home there, but it's always a bit of an adjustment coming back to here. Especially after spending blissful days with Dav and now having to be separated again. He surprised me with a trip to Cabo San Lucas!! I won't gush too much here, but if you're interested in pics, check his site. I am a very lucky gal.

If all goes well, he'll be coming over here end of June...and we'll do some Tokyo Tidbits posting together. I thought I'd do some posting from SF, but I felt so out of context. I've learned to identify posting with my Tokyo life, and it would have been a forced 'hello, I'm here' sort of posting. Anyway, although I'm waking up at 6am, I'll be getting my groove back soon. In fact, I'm meeting with Kojo-san tonight to discuss further our DJ Bar project. I got some good ideas from being in SF. I'll keep you posted about how that develops.

So, the pics are what I bought. I always fill any leftover nook and cranny in my suitcase with Trader Joe's food: peanut butter, soy milk, chai tea's so cheap I just can't resist. Next time I go back to SF will be for Burning Man, so Dav and I also went material shopping so we can make some costumes. I bought some bright colored fur pieces and cow-motif cloth to make what I hope will be warm overalls. I left it in SF, but Dav also bought me a nice blue wig!!

And after being away, it is nice to hug my cats wake up and find a black and white paw sticking out of the covers. Since I woke up so early, I went for a jog and was touched by this mini garden someone put together in styrofoam boxes right in front of their house. It's the small things like this that make me smile that I'm back in Tokyo.

fond memories of cabo - i spent a spring break down there - we drove down in a van the whole 1,000 miles from Los Angeles. we slept on the beach in full view of the arch - coronas were cheaper then water so we were washing our hair and brushing our teeth with the stuff! funny to see pictures of you in the same place, just a different time - ah yes, fish tacos!

You didn't know your brother had been there Mie? That's funny. Sounds like a much cooler trip than ours too.

Nope...didn't know Ian went there! I think that was when he was at Occidental College and I had not been to the US forever...meaning I couldn't even begin to fathom what his life was like.

Cooler trip than ours? Hmm. Don't know about brushing teeth with beer. And my tailbone would have had me in tears if we drove 1,000 miles. I liked our trip just fine...wouldn't change a thing other than having more time! kiss kiss!!

My GF and I went to the Yucatan last year and had an amazing 10 days driving all over the place, trying out all the beaches and climbing around all the Mayan ruins. Sorry, no Gallery yet.
