My friend Sukamoto gave me an invitation to her place to meet her mother and sisters and aunts and stay for dinner. Was a big afternoon with Junpei picking me up in his car then getting Sukamoto to come as translator. they drove me some distance to a huge shopping complex where I was able to get a new sleeping bag.Nighttime temps here have dropped to freezing and I was simply too cold with the sleeping bag I had. we got back to her place eventually and then began this lavish meal. Sitting on the floor for over 5 hours while this group of ladies questioned me at some length about all sorts of topics.
A lovely group of people and a very enjoyable time.
The new sleeping bag has been fantastic – and it was again very cold last night.
