I've been lucky enough to hang out with a bunch of my favorite people on this trip, even though i'm still a little upset about missing Izumi and Akari by only two days.
But hey, i'll catch them next time, i hope.
The other day i met up with Kate, who got tattooed by Allan back in April, to go have some lunch and chat and buy some souvenirs and early Christmas presents.
I love going to Asakusa, it's one of my go-to places if i don't know what to do in Tokyo, so i'm glad we agreed to meet there.
While i was waiting for Kate, i was approached by this little boy, who wanted to interview me for school. This sometimes happens at sightseeing spots, where teachers take the kids to practice English on tourists. Such a good idea, and i'm always more than happy to participate. I even got a little origami crane for my effort!
Kate was interviewed later too, and got a little present as well.
I love these little encounters!
We had okonomiyaki for lunch, and after shopping we went to Nakano for cake.
I don't know what happened with that first picture there, but it sure is 70's looking, huh?
No, we didn't go to Tokyo Skytree, even though it's close by.
Silly towers... don't we have enough?
Damn, that cake at Excelsior Cafe was good... i should go back and eat there again one of these days.
I always forget about the break thing, but after using it in this post, i realized it might be a clever way to get my less than awesome iPhone shots incorporated into my posts, without ruining the aesthetic of my analog pictures?
Not sure, but here's the first try, let's see if i can live with it!

That damn skytree...
