Weekend Update

We had a 3 day weekend over here! And it was just plain awesome.
Highlights included...
[1] Dinner at the Irish Ambassador's residence to kick-off St. Patrick's Day festivities 
(pictured with H.E. Mr. John Neary and this year's grand marshal). 
[2] A night out in Tokyo.
[3] 3am ramen run.
[5] A day trip to Yokohama's enormous Chinatown to ring-in Chinese New Year. 




We went to Chinatown to eat the great street food and see the dragon dance, which we did. Though our interaction with the dragon was a little more up-close and personal than we were prepared for. The dragon was going around dancing in front of all the stores that (we think) donated money. Note the red envelope hanging from the door frame in the video below, Mr. Dragon took that with him on his way out. While we were sitting in a cafe, Mr. Dragon came in doing his little dance and gave each of us a big dragon kiss!
Let's go year of the snake, I am expecting big things after my dragon smooch.

Hope you all had a great weekend too!
