It is Monday evening here and it feels like the day just flew by. As I think of it, the last 11 months have flown by!! I can't believe that it is almost a year since we moved from Jersey. I look forward to flying back in October to visit family, friends and run the NYC marathon!
Wondering how training is going here? Well...it is tough! Running outside is not fun, as someone put it "It is trail running through these streets!" Aside from the uneven payments, we have to be careful of potholes, packs of stray dogs, dog shit, cars, motorcycles, trash, burning trash, and more trash. So yes, lots of fun! So it is an adventure as we put in long runs.
So this weekend we went to the movies to see Ghostbusters in IMAX. Something I do love about here is that going to the movies is super CHEAP!! Ticket prices for IMAX ranges from around $4.50 - $7!! But do not think that it is a crappy IMAX theater, I would say it is so much better than the ones back home! Humongous screen with deafening sound system, just awesome! The only crazy thing is that there is intermission and some censorship!! What the hell? Actually makes it laugh when curse words are beeped out. I have gotten used to the intermission as you get around 5 - 10 minute break to go back out and refill your snacks or use the bathroom.
My quick review of Ghostbuster ... it was HILARIOUS!! I am a huge fan of the original (not the sequel as I think it sucks!) but I went in with no expectations. I will even say that this version stands up against the original, maybe even better! So go see it if you haven't yet.
This weekend two movies open up that we're excited for: Jason Bourne and Suicide Squad. Back to the IMAX we go!
Before I log out here, I want to share a picture of something I love: bread and peanut butter! Mariana decided to bake a peanut butter loaf and gave it a try on Saturday night. Well it was completely done by Sunday evening! (I did not eat it all lol we shared with others.)
It was a hit! Using the home made peanut butter we make, she baked another one this morning before going into work. Yummy in my tummy! Cutting two slices and spreading some jam, it becomes a PB&J sandwich!
Alright, till next time here is another picture from Japan.
