I just got back a bit ago from watching the Space Shuttle Endeavour blast off from Cape Canaveral. It was absolutely spectacular! Below is a photo I took. See more pictures here.
I went out to watch the shuttle take off with a group of good friends from Orlando. As much fun as it was to see the shuttle taking off, it was even better being back with old friends.
Earlier in the day, I met Noriko and Hiroko for dinner at Sushi Tomi, my favorite Japanese restaurant. The three of us used to get together for lunch here once a week and it was just like old times again.
Akiko, my favorite waitress was there. She's amazing -- it's been nearly 3 years since I moved away and she still remembered my usual order of gyudon with tamago.
It's wonderful to be home again.
