Wow, I am delayed with my writing. Again! Sorry.

I will never, ever … ever eat meat again!
At least not for the rest of this week.
Let me start with Sunday. I met Stephanie at Sapporo Factory (big shopping mall) to spent some time with Shiori and Yu, who were exchange students at STU last year. We had a big Chinese dumpling with pork filling and Sapporo ice cream. Apple Pie flavor! (They mix the Vanilla ice cream with fresh apples and pie.) Just wonderful.
The plan for the night was to go up Mount Moiwa to see Sapporo at night. Due to the rainy weather we met Naomi and Steph’s host mom to go out to eat instead.
First she took us to a flower exhibition:
Although I do appreciate some Ikebana that reminds me of the day Koko showed me one of her prize winning flower arrangments. My first thought was: Salad!
At “Sapporo Bier Garten” (great German name, isn’t it). Steph’s host mom offered to take some of our costs for Genghis Khan (a huge platter of meat to grill at the table). We also had “tabehodai” and “nomihodai”. I figured: “Well, she’s inviting us. I should eat and drink as much as possible.”
Tabehodai = All you can eat. Nomihodai = All you can drink.
Naomi and I both drank 2 liters of Sapporo beer and altogether the 4 of us finished about 6 of those plates (Sorry to my vegetarian friends)!
I was not bursting. NO! I was dying. I had a headache and felt terrible altogether before I went to bed and the day after. It was far too much meat (The beer was not a problem although that was a lot, too )
When I returned to Kirari the next day Naomi was already munching on cereal. No clue where the girl puts all that food.
So, here I am, tired and exhausted,... and then the Koreans ask us to go out for Soup Curry. I went for the socializing part. I ate. And now I really don’t want to even think or look at food anymore. Looking at these pictures is already painful to my brain and stomach.
Sigh! Anyways… as you can see I have nothing else to worry about for once.
Good night and good luck
