Good Things To Come.

I must apologize--it's been an embarassingly long time since I have written. But, I leave for Tokyo in two days for an insane ramen odyssey, so I promise to return with plenty of stories and photos! I am also going to Osaka, which is, apparently, the mecca of street food. There is a saying for Osaka called kuidaore, which my Japanese sister-in-law, Hiromi, translates to mean "eat 'til you drop" or "eat 'til you go bankrupt" or "eat 'til you burst". Ziiiiing! Osaka has found my life motto, and I haven't even been there yet.

I just realized how nerdy I have become about food when I started planning this vacation around where I can eat the most talked-about food and where the crazy grocery stores are located. That's right, people, I loooove to go to grocery stores in foreign countries. My brother would say that is totally absurd.

See you soon! T.O.K.Y.O.
