Since graduation, the students have been having exams and spring vacation, which means a somewhat relaxed schedule for teachers these past few weeks. Of course, there’s still tons of papers to mark, and lessons to plan, but there’s much more freedom to leave campus for errands and lunch. So as proof that I don’t just eat sweets all day, and evidence of the fact that I take a picture of pretty much everything I eat, here’s a little run down.
On Wednesday, the lady teachers went out for Italian. (You might recognize that rose in the corner!) I love going out with my female coworkers, and as my Japanese gets better, the more I enjoy it. One of my primary motivations for learning this language is to be able to understand all the gossip and juicy bits!
I had a lovely linguine with a tomato cream sauce with basil and whole enormous prawns. The set also came with a yummy beet soup, a salad, and a cafe con panna. I was glad it came with a coffee, as I was really sleepy afterward!
On Thursday Sean came down to school, and we went to our favorite Indian place, Mum Taj. They have an awesome lunch set, with endless Naan, rice, soup, daal, and veggies, as well as unlimited coffee and a variety of teas. Sean’s came with Barbeque and dessert too, the latter of which I snagged. Yum!
On Friday, I went to a Soba place with one of the English teachers and our good friend T. They were getting the jumbo, and I attempted it, but it was just too many noodles. Delicious, but I couldn’t conquer the mountain!
I love the huge variety of foods available in our area. Italian, Indian, and of course Japanese are all delicious, and it’s a treat to have them all! I love Japanese food, but I’m really glad that there are so many options available. Of course, it’s still hard to find some things (Mexican, sigh…) but we’re still pretty lucky. What’s your favorite? Which one would you like to try?
