Lunch with Joe

I had lunch with my friend Joe today.  I met Joe back in October or November.  She is a wonderful woman who feeds the stray cats and crows and other birds in Arisugawa Park.  I was trying to photograph a few stray cats back then as she was feeding them and we struck up a conversation.  She spoke very good English and was always so interesting.  We became fast friends very quickly.  I see her every time I go to the park around 8:00 in the morning as that is the time she feeds the cats.  She came to Tokyo about 20 years ago from Taiwan.  

We had a great lunch in a wonderful Italian restaurant in the Hiroo section of Tokyo.  We talked about life, reincarnation, the Dalai Lama, and the relationship between China and Japan.  A great lunch and a good friend.  Here's a picture of Joe as she is administering some eye medicine for one of her stray cats.
