It's Saturday night about 10:30 and I should be hitting the sack as the three of us Kono's will be off tomorrow at 5:30 a.m. for a three day skiing trip somewhere in the middle of Japan. Today we had a wonderful guest from the U.S. of A. - Adrian Rodzianko. Adrian is the nephew of my sister-in-law Anna Rodzianko. He is stationed on the air craft carrier - The U.S. George Washington. He is a delightful young man who loves the opera as well as Bruce Springstein. We had a fun day having lunch in a soba restaurant just off of Omote Sando, then home for tea and cookies, walk to the Meiji Shrine, and then back home for a dinner of sun dried fish, miso soup, sesame spinach, and Yumiko's wonderful chocolate for dessert all being prepared during the sumo wrestling match. I'll be back to blog after we return on Wednesday.
