eating in the expensive district

We ate at a Thai place, and I was very excited because I like Thai food. We ordered many plates to share, again. The only really unusual one was the whole shrimp with the eyes and legs, so I ate only one. I was eating what I thought was a green vegetable when suddenly my mouth started on fire. I had a hidden chili pepper or something, and I soon had tears running down my cheeks. That was enough green vegetable for me! I selected Pad-See-Ew, because I knew I liked it. It was a noodle dish, but I seemed to be the only one who liked it. Oh well. It was all very good food.
After dinner, we walked around Ginza a bit. Ginza is a very rich district with expensive rents. We saw a building with supposedly the most expensive real estate in the world - approximately $100,000 per square meter (it is quite possible I got my translations mixed up). After a bit of walking and enjoying the neon-lit buildings, we caught a cab home. At home, I gave them their gifts - the Rubbermaids and dryer sheets, a photo book of Minnesota, some Girl Scout Cookies, lotions, and Easter candy. Her father didn’t know about the request for the Rubbermaids, and when he saw them he got very excited. He picked up a small dish and said it was perfect to take his rice in to work for lunch. Yay! Then we went to bed.
