"Eating by Hand"

On Saturday, I ate authentic Nepalize food at my friend M's apartment. She has friends from all over the world, and one of them is from Nepal! We had chicken curry, and this soupy stuff that you pour and mix into rice. And in traditional Nepalize fashion, we ate with our hands! (no forks or chopsticks!) I'm sorry I don't have any pictures on my camera, I will try to snag some pics from M.

I had so much fun (like usual with M) since we decided we are both "old souls". We have similar opinions on things, and surprisingly, she has done a fashion show (or two?), paints amazingly... reminds me of me! She is fluent in over 5 languages and has traveled all over the world. She is also an excellent cook, she is trained as a pastry chef!

Hey Tammy! Glad you found some kindred souls there in Tokyo. The pictures of the gorge, etc. that you went to look so much like the Pacific NW.
My Japanese students were so impressed that you were at Waseda--they lit up and said, "Oh, very smart!"
