1. I woke up wishing I was in Paris, envisioning I was climbing the steps to the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur again. Not a bad way to wake up.
2. Buuuuut some students brought me a slice of dark chocolate cake at lunchtime, so Japan was looking better and better.
3. After school, I had a Valentine’s Day party with my English Club. My friend Laney sent me these napkins from the States. KAWAII. (Also, more cookies from students, with the realization that they think my name is spelled SALA.)
4. And then I was off to a ramen dinner with some other teachers. I indulged in a huuuuuuuge bowl of Sapporo ramen. (No black ramen on the menu. Darn.)
Happy Valentine’s Day/weekend, depending on where you are in the world, folks. I’m off to Tokyo (Gone Girl in hand) for the next two days!
