Aubrey, Ke (the baby), Koze, and Takeshi before the dinner began. Speaking of the dinner's beginning, it was a strange mix of traditions. It was held in a home in Japan owned by a Japanese husband and American wife. It was served tapas-style, which is Spanish. It had French wine and Japanese liquor (not my fault, not my house). It featured mostly American food. And before we began, we shared a bit about Thanksgiving's history and then each of the 12 present shared something for which they were thankful and toasted it, which is no less than very Russian! So a really weird dynamic. But that didn't detract from the great taste of the food!
This is a picture.
