EAT IN TAKE OUT
CAFE & RELAXIN'
Mike and I had tried to grab a coffee here ages ago but the café doesn't open too early in the morning.
Greg and Kate ordered some substantial meals as their lunch. I'd already eaten my disastrous left-overs hours ago. I ordered a cafe latte and a チズ ケキ chizu keki (cheesecake) - just a little something to tie me over during the hour break before the Japanese tea ceremony.
Sounds a bit of a girly thing, but I'm thinking it can't be all girls at this tea ceremony otherwise it'd be called the Japanese Nuns' tea ceremony. If you're the sort of person that learns by making mistakes then this is the sure way to learn a lot in a short space of time, verging on total embarrassment. I'm certainly not getting any climbing done around here, but if you need to work on dexterity, then this is the ticket. It is comforting when my Japanese colleague tells me that theceremony is difficult even for Japanese people to perfect.
See how your bladder goes after about 14 cups of tea!
