Visiting my cousin Jason in Sendai

When I spent Christmas with my family last year we all dressed in matching panda pajamas.
This year I didn't get to spend Christmas at home, but my best friends sent me a picture of them doing the same thing this year. I love this idea and I hope there will be more opportunities to wear matching pajamas with my family and friends in the future.
What a fun way to celebrate the holidays with the people you love.
Happy holidays y'all x

The nabe, which autocorrect is trying to change to babe, is taking a long time to heat up. Tensions rise high, but the water temperature remains low.
Sitting hungry and exhausted of an entire day of exploring and conversation, inevitably we are irritated and frustrated.
Actually everyone is pretty chill. Jelle got out his business cards and everyone is having a delightful bit of chit chat which distracted us from the wait. With that the magic of thermo-heat technology is working and sayuri has started adding vegetables to the pot.
Today we went to kichijoji, and the Mori arts museum.
There is currently an incredible exhibition on and I'm pleased we went to see it.

I learnt to say "交渉" or "kousho" which directly translates as "negotiation" but is actually used in the context of asking for a discount. Which I was asked for by everyone.
