Time to Forget Our Woes

20 12 2013

December in Japan is that time of the year when people from workplace or school or other groups of friends typically get together to have “end-of-year” parties called “bonenkai” (literally “forget the year party”).

We had one for our department the other night.  For a change, we had it in a Turkish restaurant with a belly dancer and all followed by a more casual and fun sort of place.

Love it! I can’t think of better way of ringing in the New Year that with the bells on a Turkish belly dancer! Happy holiday, Ayako. Ken

Thank you, Ken! When my staff told me that he had chosen this Turkish restaurant, I said, cool, I love their food, but do we really have to have belly dancer…?? It turned out great though as you can see. ^^
