Day 3, Part 2

April 11th, 2005

P and I were in the hotel lobby, while I waited for Rica and Takami to meet me, and the next thing we knew, everyone else was there!

The rest of the gang decided to hit up Shibuya while I went out to Koujimachi to do a sound and video check at A|Z Cafe. P decided to go to Odaiba to go to a stationery store (that turned out to be long gone, oh well.)

The A|Z Cafe is really a nice little place – very comfortable and friendly. The sound/vid check went off without a hitch, which is worriesome. lol

We sat and discussed the schedule and other details, then had lunch. Eating is a bit of a trial right now – I’m still jetlagging pretty hard. But the food was amazingly good and I did pretty well, although they didn’t think so. :-(

I ordered the fried oyster balls in miso sauce. If you get a chance to try that at the A|Z cafe, I strongly recommend them!


This is, from left to right, Kajimura-san, the owner of the Cafe, Takami and Rica, all working hard while I sat and stared.

Everything is good to go for Yuricon 2005 in Toky – all we need is people to come!

My eyes were smimming in my head when we left. JUST as I crashed onto the bed of the hotel room, P walked in. Figures. So now we’re relaxing in the room, watching a dubbed and subtitled silent western. Seriously.

Oh, weather today is cold and rainy with intermittent earthquakes. (Weird…I was *just* typing “just kidding” when a temblor hit. What a freaky feeling!)

Tonight’s plan is to do snacks and watch Doctor Who. And to *finally* let me crash and burn!

Tomorrow, we begin the tour. I wonder how it will turn out? LOL

    Hi Erica,

    I am glad that you’re all fine after the earthquake. Kirsten told us that while she was on the road, the radio said something earthquake in Tokyo!

    Enjoy your trip!
