Did you get to see the transit of Venus yesterday? We did. Well at first, there were clouds here and there.
This "event" wasn't as popular as the solar eclipse last month, but the great thing about this one was that it was all morning, so you could "check-in" with it off and on.
I gotta say though, "Venus is so teeny in comparison to the sun!" When Satoshi first looked at it, he was like "Where? Where?"
Apparently the next time to see this is 2117?! so, I hope you all got a chance to see it...
This past Saturday we headed to Umeda to have lunch before Satoshi's German language class.
We chose Ken's curry, in the Yodobashi Camera building because there was no line to get in.
You buy your meal ticket from the machine outside the shop and pass it along to the staff inside.
I chose the spinach curry topped with cheese...780 yen for the curry, 100 yen for the cheese.
Satoshi went with the seasonal vegetable curry...850 yen. This was topped with some takenoko (bamboo shoots) as well as other veggies.
My only peeve about this place was that it took so long for us to get our orders. There is a guy in the center of the "O" shaped counter that fills a small pot with some curry and passes it into the kitchen where they cook everything.
I swear they were cooking everything from scratch with the amount of time it took.
While I enjoyed the taste of the curry, which was a little spicy, their service was a little too slow and price-wise I think they were a little higher than the curry we had last week.
After lunch, Satoshi had some time before his class so we headed to the basement of the Yodobashi Camera building for some coffee at Barissimo.
Apparently the name is a fusion of "barista" and "-issimo" (which apparently means the best in Italian)
Satoshi had a regular coffee while I went with their cafe cioccolata (a hot chocolate with a shot of espresso)...rich and chocolatey!
Then Satoshi was off to his class and I was off to do some window shopping.
What did you do last Saturday?
