The Sushi Telegraph

Here we go again after a few weeks waiting for a few comments… still waiting guys. You really don’t deserve it but, let’s say I missed you.

Telling you everything would be too long, so let’s go for the basic information.

Autumn arrived to Kanto region and the maple trees turned yellow, brown, golden and finally red. We witnessed this magic event with a few thousand other people at Takao Mountain and with our favourite Good Will Guide: Hiratasan!!! This guy is amazing, once again.

After the Koyo (that’s Japanese expression for ‘watching the change of colour on the trees in autumn’) experience, we had an appointment with Fernando in Shibuya for dinner. And those who didn’t catch the last train back home went to the Karaoke. Watch the video, there’s nothing else I can say after that.

Other things we have done lately: watching Spanish National Ballet for free with Fernando, watching the NHK Figure Skating Trophy with Guillermo, discovering a Spanish bar with real tapas and not too expensive wide wine menu: Tio Danjo in Ebisu. Going to Ikebukuro for dinner and enjoy a tasty yakiniku and an excellent hot sweet sake with some Spaniard friends.

As you can see, we are training ourselves for being good hosts. Our first try was Guillermo’s cousin and his wife, they came in Honeymoon but only stayed in Tokyo for one night so we did a fast tour around Ikebukuro (a bit stressful but nicer than Shibuya) and took a last sake near their hotel where we met a very nice Japanese couple of artist who helped us out with the order and started a very nice conversation.
A few days later, Fernando’s young sister arrived and we also spent time with them, specially Guillermo, at the Akihabara Technologic District (god I hate that place!!!!)
I went with them and Fernando to Yoyogi Park, we got lucky and witnessed a marriage celebration, at least part of it. Also visited the Metropolitan Tokyo Center and saw the mount Fuji (yes,again, it has been Fuji’s month).

Now, get ready for the geeky things we have done:
Taking pictures of the guys who count people in the metro stations since 3 weeks now… They don’t even know what it is for, but they count. Like the hostesses in an aircraft. And they smile, look at the picture!
Guillermo is having breakfast, he found a replacement for the TAHO Filipino and now he eats peanut butter sandwiches, all prepared and packed to be eating without the crust!!! They have more, but the peanut is the best!!! See the pictures.

We celebrated San Clemente (its a Guillermo’s thing, don’t understand neither). We couldn’t make the parade like at Guillermo’s home town but we ate the typical dish: migas!!!!! Look for it on internet! And we drunk the whole red wine bottle Guillermo stole at the King’s reception.
By the way, I forgot to say: the King and Queen of Spain came to visit Tokyo, the organized a huge reception with typical and expensive products, so we managed to get an invitation and went there. Of course we are not the kind ‘let’s say hi to Juan Carlos’, we were more interested in having a nice and cheap peace of Spanish cuisine!!!! And we did have it!!!! We also ended up loosing the last metro and taking a very expensive taxi from Toyocho Station, but we spend a very very pleasant night!!!

You should know that Guillermo has his VISA!!! I am just waiting for an invitation from immigration services to pick up my own VISA, is incredible. I thought I would end up leaving the country… ufffff but let me say something, it is the quickest paperwork I ever did in a foreign country. Is just a little tricky, specially because our Japanese is still kind of GUGUGAGA… so hard to follow instructions!

Last but not the lest: Guillermo is in his last long hair phase… about a month before the final cut, he realizes that having his kind of hair style is worse than not having hair at all!!!! but still proud of it!!!!
