My day began roughly at 6:40ish. I do not know what time Michelle entered the room last night but it must have been late, because I did not sense her come in. (Maybe she was being quiet). Anyways, for breakfast I had….toast and eggs…again. I’m starting to get a bit tired of toast and eggs. I finally got to talk to my parents today and it was really refreshing, because I am officially starting to get homesick (but just bit, homesick for Hispanic food). Today was the first time that Kyoto was chilly, I kinda regretted wearing a skirt on my way to the bus stop. It was suppose to rain, but I decided against bringing my umbrella (later to regret…).
Around 6:20ish PM, I met up with Mitch and Megan. We went out to eat dinner at a little hole in the wall restaurant I pass every time I go up Sanjo-dori. We entered to our surprise it was a small family owned restaurant, run by an old Japanese man…who only spoke very very little English. His face of panic was so funny, three foreigners entered his restaurant. He was really sweet for the most part and we were able to communicate efficiently to order food. Not only did he serve us, but he also cooked and did the dishes, he was a very efficient man. Megan had already eaten so she did not get anything. So Mitch and I did all the eating, and he also treated me to dinner (because he felt bad that he got so lost that I ate dinner by myself last night, and when he found his way I cooked him pasta). Mitch and I figured out what we ordered when the plate arrived to us. Most of the ordering consisted of pointing and then the old Japanese man brining us food we did not exactly order. We had fried fish ( or at least we thing) and a fried fish head. Sweet pickled plums and bamboo shoots with what we think was scallops and Japanese mushrooms.
Once we finished eating, the three of us headed to Teramachi (the mall place I always end up in) and there we walked around for a bit. Something I really do not like about Japan is how early everything closes, even on a Friday. We were in the mall at 8ish and more than half of the stores were already closed. Very few places were open. Mit
ch took us to an arcade where I had a go at DDR and weird Japanese game (I lost at both). It was still very fun though. I really enjoy hanging out with Mitch, he is really fun to be with and he is also very calm and chill. After we played the two games we walked back down Sanjo-dori and took our separate ways home.
