Le temps á Washington D.C.

Le temps á Washington D.C.

Le temps á Washington fait très froid c’est semaine. Lundi il fait moi six degrés le matin et un degrés á midi mais il ne pleut pas. Je vais porter une manteau grande, une écharpe, et des gants. Quand il fait très froid, j’aime rester á la maison mais je dois aller á l’école.

Vendredi il pleut. Je vais porter une veste et bottes. Quand il pleut, je n’aime pas conduire. Les routes sont trop glissant. Je préfère prendre le Métro. C’est facile et pratique.

I Need You Around

I Need You Around

If I could stand to be on my own
Then I would probably just leave you alone
But I’m gonna feel this way till I’m six feet underground
Crazy as it sounds, I need you around

Turning, tossing and turning
My love is burning me down

Hello, Japan!

Hello, Japan!

I’ve titled this post “Hello, Japan!” in keeping with the theme I’ve got going but this is really a farewell post. We spent almost three years in Japan, exploring the country and the culture from our homeport in Sasebo. According to iPhoto, I captured more than 10,000 memories. Losing César in Japan will forever cast a shadow on our time there but we made so many good memories there, too.

Hello, America!

Technically, this is part IV of my “Homeward Bound” post but “Hello, America!” seems more fitting. We covered 12 states and the District in six days. According to iPhoto, we are making some serious progress on our Places map!

EmporiYUM

I don’t remember how we heard about The EmporiYUM but I do recall that we whipped out the credit card for VIP tickets with a startling quickness. Don’t judge. Three years is a long time to go without delicious American decadence.
