I leave you with this photo of Megan and me that Thuy took. We were having refreshments at the cute little tea shop next to Kinokuniya. Megan got an iced cocoa, Thuy had the matcha float, and I had a pot of Darjeeling. Megan looks to be eyeing Thuy’s float, doesn’t she? This photo was taken before Megan cut my hair. I now sport a sort of shaggy mullet.
