Australia Day

A U S T R A L I A     D A Y 

26th January, 2016 

I'm missing Oz. 


                                                   We went for Sunday lunch in Misse, This City.                                                     We went to a Korean shop on the second floor. 
                                                    It used to be a Chinese shop. 
                                                    Food was good. 



After that we wandered about for a bit and ended up
having coffee at  Danke Schon in Nakago.

18th January, 2016 

The Tohoku Region had a BIG drop of snow overnight. 
There was traffic chaos, delays, cancellations, etc. 

I took these two photos from OWL looking over the bridge
which crosses the Abukuma River. 

Tetsu (Panasonic) gave me this Hot Wine kit. 
How kind. 

 It was a very chilly, rainy night and we went to the izakaya
in Honda San's old shop. My face is red from the bitter cold - we had just walked in. 

Snow - I took this picture from the apartment. 

 One of my favourite foods is beetroot. 
It is not easy to get in Japan and very expensive here, too ! 
Chikako bought me a can. 

This drink was a topic in a Lounge Lesson. 
Tetsu ( Panasonic ) bought me a pet bottle
of it to try. It tastes like rice pudding.

17th January, 2016.

We went walking in the Azuma Sports Park
before the snow set in for the Winter.
Snow has been very late, the temperature mild......

 The low light of the afternoon was very soothing .... I enjoyed. 
So different to the harsh light of Australia. 

Dinner !
Yum yum.

It is such a mild Winter that we have not really had any snow
in This City yet. Nor in That City, either. 

We went to our favourite noodle shop for lunch today.

Service ....... we usually get free gyoza however this time 
we received a special treat. 

Thank you to the Shop's Master and Staff  ( one lady ).

We drove Demi Chan to That City
to have early dinner with Chikako's parents
in their house.
Of course, we also wanted to see Justy San !
