I know I probably mention this every time, but today was CURRY day for lunch!

I love curry. Of course, it's different here in Japan than it is in America, but it's still pretty good.

However, I made a terrible misjudgment. Usually, I try to eat with the students, but when it's something I don't think I'm going to eat much of, I'll stay in the teacher's room (I don't want to set a bad example by not finishing my lunch; the students are REQUIRED to finish their lunches).

Today, I saw a bowl of vegetables and a plate of vegetables. I stayed in the teacher's room. D'oh!

I didn't realize it was curry until it was too late.

By the way, the plate of vegetables....was fruit and vegetables. Mixed. Apples, pineapples, pickles, cabbage, with a cottage cheese/mayo dressing. It was...interesting.

I didn't finish the pickles, but other than that I ALMOST finished my lunch again. So far that's three really close calls and one finish. I'm getting better...


  1. Mmm... Curry...

    So what's the difference between American curry and Japanese curry?

  2. Well, I've been here for four months and have yet to find Chicken Curry. Anywhere. :'(

    Also, Japanese curry is not nearly as thick as American curry. Coincidentally, when I was in America, I ate my curry with hashi, but here, I have to use a spoon. Oh, the irony is thick, but the curry isn't.
