This is my last post until I arrive back in Tokyo. I'm leaving today, but due to the time difference, I'll arrive Sunday afternoon. Until then, here are a few things I'll miss about New York:
Riding the subway and seeing people of four different ethnicities sitting next to each other in a row.
Watching people from around the world exercising their right to free speech:
Going to the new Monty Python musical "Spamalot" one night, and then running into the lead actor, Fraiser's David Hyde Pierce, the next day on the street.
Watching a mom from Tennessee having dinner with her New York daughter at Tomoe. Mom: twangy accent, asks for a fork, won't eat "raw fish". Daughter: no accent, uses chopsticks, orders sushi deluxe.
Thanks for enduring this lighter "vacation edition" of Riding Sun. I'll be back to normal posting soon.
