Today I finally got to tick another thing off my bucket list; chado. I was invited to partake in 'The Way of the Tea' (or a Japanese tea ceremony) last November by my vice principle.

... We saw a lot in a short time, then the guys took us out for the night to the very fun Rippongi area, famous for music, pubs and people watching.
My new buddy Anthony the Canadian used to work in this part of town, teaching near here and tending bar. Even though this was over 7 years before, he seemed to know everyone.
