This was apparently a recent conversation between Satoshi and his lunch group...

them: where are you going for your vacation?

him: palau

them: ooh, are you going hiking?

him: nope

them: ooh, are you going scuba diving?

him: nope

them: ooh, are you going to watch the dolphins?

him: nope

them: then you won't have anything to do there.

him: kat grew up in hawaii and she just wants to veg.

them: if you won't be doing anything, why are you going there?

him: actually, I chose the place, if she chose we would be going to paris or europe.

them: oh...

see you all in a couple of days...have a nice weekend!

p.s. before leaving satoshi mentioned that he had some bad news, we fly out of nagoya (NGO) instead of kansai (KIX) (takes about the same amount of time to get to nagoya airport (except we need to ride the shinkansen (bullet train), which the airlines is paying for too)), and they would upgrade us to business class?! so, we have to wake up a little early, but if that is bad news, I wonder what his good news would be?

p.p.s. all comments will be posted when we return!

Whenever we go through US-Canada immigration, we get asked our purpose for travelling in the US, and my answer is always, "To eat." We get a lot of weird looks. :-)

Hope you have/had a great vacation and eat a lot of great food!

Have fun in Palau! If you run into a lady named Evelyn that went to college in Honolulu and interned and worked for Outrigger tell her to send me an email... she just disappeared suddenly to move back to Palau a few years ago.

Have a fun and restful time. I am still trying to figure out his bad news too! ;-)

My favorite part:

him: actually, I chose the place, if she chose we would be going to paris or europe.

That's right you would!
