We were supposed to go to Kyoto today and see Kinkakuji temple. Then we’d have a nice lunch and head home like old farts do. It would have been healthy and enjoyable.
Instead, after a bit of a communication breakdown one dropped out while the other two embarked on an eight hour drinking and eating extravaganza. We went to the seedy part of town and had a great burger at Rich Garden, then on to a nameless old cheap izakaya for an afternoon buzz, then out for a light dinner and conversation at The Westside American Bar.
THEN, on back home where I ended up having one or two more as a nightcap. See, I’m telling you. This place is dangerous for drinkers. It’s so easy to get caught up in it all. GET ME OUT OF HERE!
