That's a great story, but if he starts running around the house with a necktie tied around his head, making loud sucking noises trying to get food unstuck from between his teeth, you should probably start worrying.


By the way Clay, where did you say you are, and how much longer will you be there?

I will be sure to let everyone know if he starts doing that. :oops:

We are in Fukui City (Fukui ken) and leave September 22nd. We are halfway looking forward to going back to Florida, but know we will miss Fukui as soon as we leave. :mrgreen: We are staying with Yumi's parents which is nice, but it isn't home. (That and I REALLY miss Mexican food)

Almost the very first thing I did when I went back to the States last week was head to our local Mexican place and pig out! They have the most delicious salsa with lots and lots of cilantro in it. Mmmmm!

And a roaming Mariachi band!

I found a Mexican restaurant in Tokyo once. My excitement cooled after seeing the price tag for a single taco. I can't remember now how much it was, but the tiny taco just didn't seem to be worth what they were asking (and this is coming from someone who was craving tacos!)

When we honeymooned in Singapore I pigged out at a Tex-Mex restaurant they had there. We have pictures of that event. I still drool a little when thinking of it.

I do love the many Indian restaurants in Japan. In Florida, I have to drive an hour to get curry that is half-way decent.

Oh, I make some killer salsa's.. I make one that's totally fresh (in other words nothing cooked) and another one where I saute the vegetables. I even had an associate (from Mexico) ask me to make her some because her mother liked it so much.. I was completely floored at that request. Although I usually go pretty light on the cilantro.
