Went to lunch at the restuarant that was closed the other day. It was awesome beyond words in ways I can:t describe. As we walked back to the station, two girls that had been queuing in front of us called out to me. I:d dropped my wallet and they had picked it up.
Earlier in the day, I:d been to the ATM and figured I should get some cash out, in case I couldn:t over the weekend. Being very confused about the yen, I just got out a random amount. Later, I counted it out and did a rough conversion – I had nearly $1000 in cash on me. I:m so not used to carrying cash and can:t believe I still have that much money left this late in the holiday.
I nearly hugged those girls!
Now I:m thinking since I*m better off than expected, I want to buy something grand and memorable from my holiday. We really haven:t been shopping much, mostly buying food and coffee, so I think a splurge is in order. Just not sure what I want though.
OMG, just checked my credit card account – still have $1000 in there after paying for the hotel today. We didnt: have accomm booked anywhere for Monday so decided to stay at the same place. They had no single rooms available so we got a double room EACH. Awesome.
Anyway, got back to the hotel after lunch to check in. Went up to our rooms – we:d left our luggage earlier in the day and they:d taken it up to our rooms. No lugging stuff into a lift for us (I really don:t understand this – in Japan you have automatic sensors to flush your toilet, sensors for washing your hands but every freaken lift we get in, doesn:t have motion detectors in the door. I reckon I*m covered in bruises from lift doors closing on me!)
Got to our rooms and I nearly burst into tears!!!! It:s so nice. So very, very, very nice. It has a nice bed and a nice writing desk and everything is pretty and best of all – my sister isn:t in it. I like my sister a lot but OMG I:m sick of sharing a room with her.
