We just got back from our first Japan trip together. I was very excited to show Valerie where, how, and with whom I grew up. Valerie did great trying out many weird Japanese things including squid, fish, etc… Next time, I need to get her to try the Japanese toilet… fortunately for Valerie, my family reformed our toilet into a western style a couple of years ago.
The day Valerie arrived
We were supposed to meet at Tokyo Station Shinkansen entrance at 7pm. I waited and waited but no Valerie. There were 2 entrances for Shinkansen, so I came and went one to the other over 15 times. It was already around 9 pm. I asked around if anyone has seen a blond girl with a huge keyboard case. Then one family said “Yes we saw her. She was on the same Narita Express with us.” And I finally found her. There had been no time that I missed Valerie that much in my life.
