An old friend of mine, Albert, went on a quick trip to Japan in the past few weeks, a short interlude to his business life. (He is certainly on his way to being a CEO, one of the smartest and most socially adept guys I’ve known.)

He uploaded photos from the trip onto facebook, and tagged me in this photo:

smile! nara night lights

It was a picture from the Nara night lights when he was there. He said it was because I was always smiling every time he saw me.

And I was back. In front of the Yaki-pan nightstall at Asakusa Tera. Bright lights dazzled my eyes. I blinked, slightly disorientated.

Asakusa Night Stalls

I snapped this photo of the night restaurants as we left the food stall area, knowing it'd become I good memory.

In my hands were a packet of the Yaki-pan (which is what I call it now, since I’m not even sure of it’s actual name). At the time I think we bough it, half because we thought the girl working at the stall was cute. (more…)
