Nothing better than being a total geek on the couch
Someone was very surprised
After returning late one night from Phuket I jumped on a plane early the next morning to surprise my dad with a quick birthday visit. I would have flown around the world two times just to see the look on his face when he walked in the door and saw me sitting there in his chair. It was priceless. It was a short visit, but we managed to get a lot done including two trips to the Apple store in U-village, two trips to Fry’s electronics, a trip to Best Buy and a trip to Circuit City. I guess you can imagine what was on my shopping list.
Hanging out with my little sister making monkey bread
Enjoying the freshly baked monkey bread…..delicious!
I hadn’t been home for a year and half and it felt good to be back in the cool, damp Seattle air. It’s nice to see familiar places and be surrounded by English speakers and English writing. I like the challenge of learning Mandarin, but not being able to read a single label at the grocery store or being able to carry a conversation with someone can be difficult.
My shopping list included runs to every computer and gadget store, Laura’s was taken care of at Barnes and Noble
It’s always nice to see good friends
Making connections in Tokyo is easy
A little inflight nutrition to keep me going
