Wow, time really flies... and what an amazing invention email is!
I saw a friend from Ecuador that I have met in Boston more than 6 years ago. We went to the same language school and took the same classes -- the classes I have met a lot of wonderful friends from all over the world.
Because of the great "EMAIL system", I still keep in touch with them.
He ,VIER (well...it's kinda difficult to make up Western names with my rule...) is one of them.
It was really great to see him again. It's been a long while since I last met him...I don't even remember when it was...all I remember is that was a surprise gathering for Moko in NYC several years ago.
VIER was in NY at that time, and our another common friend, AKA was in Connecticut...and I was coming to NYC from Boston to see Moko (was coming from Japan for vacation).
Well...I just wanted to surprise her, so I asked VIER and AKA to walk into a bar where Moko and I were supposed to be, of course without telling her at all!
Guess what happened! I got her so bad.
She thought they came in the bar "coincidentally" -- no way! it would be million parts of possibility! I just couldn't help laughing...
I was so glad that they did a favor for me and came to see Moko.
It was a great fun reunion...
Am I too emotional? Is that because I am coming back to Japan pretty soon???
Oh, well...but I really feel lucky that I have a lot of great friends, of course in Japan and also in the world. Wonderful moments with them are simply precious memories.
I definitely believe that the encounters with my lovely friends are on my notebook.
Yeah, you are :)
