Apparently there is wi-fi in the air near my local family eatery. And here I am, enjoying the heck out of it.

I am in the city for a bit of a 'going away' party for my good friend E who is now returning to the Americas, where he is originally from. In Japan, you have a lot of this: Foreigners coming and going and coming. You're always saying goodbye to someone. Because of my marriage, I don't get as much of a chance to hang out with the foreigners and E is probably the last that I will be really good friends with in Niigata, although I'm sure to meet more foreigners at my new job. And I'm sure to be good friends with some of them.

The Bose in-ear headphones are great, but they are uncomfortable sometimes.
