On the occasion of my 62nd birthday yesterday, Lindsey, Caro, Shaun, JD and myself went to the Bonsai Bar Restaurant where we enjoyed an excellent meal. Bonsai provides all sorts of unusual dishes.
Caro was the only one at our table who had been to Japan. The conversation went:
Caro: “I was once in transit in Japan for eight hours. Eight hours was enough…”
Me: “Eight hours was enough? How can eight hours be enough to see a country? Did you think the north was more interesting than the south? Or did something terrible happen?”
Caro: “…for me to realise that I’d really like to go back there.”
