Since we had come all that way and were quite hungry, we decided to check out other restaurants in the area. After a bit of wandering around the restaurant floor of a nearby shopping center, we went to an Italian place that had a menu full of things we wanted to try. We wound up narrowing it down to fondue and four-cheese pizza. Afterward, we went to a dessert place that sells each dessert with free refills at their drink bar, though by that time it was getting rather late. We left just in time to drop in at the shopping center's manga store before places started closing. The neat thing was that the bookstore had streetsign-like posts (the kind you always see at crossroads in cartoons) pointing to the different sections.
Tuesday we spent pretty much the whole day sitting around the apartment. I started working on writing a timeline of events for G*Defend, which forced poor wednesday_10_00 to occupy herself by snapping a bizillion pictures of kitty body parts.
I am getting serious digital camera envy.
The event of the day was a strong earthquake that hit the coast up north of us. By the time the tremors got to Chiba, it was only level 4, but it was LONG. It lasted at least a solid minute. It felt as if the entire apartment was sitting on a waterbed.
That night we went out with a group of students from one of wednesday_10_00's English classes. They treated us to a meal at a tofu restaurant and three hours of karaoke.
This morning I continued to work on the GD timeline. I finished the last volume that I don't own just before noon, then packed and set off for home.
