It might be snowing in Takaoka, Japan, but it's raining in Saipan!!!
We were supposed to hike down to Forbidden Island this morning, but when we woke up we were experiencing monsoon-like conditions. We had to cancel. Hiking down the steep incline of Forbidden Island during this type of weather would kill you.
Last night I went out for drinks with my Nina (godmother) Frances Borja. We went to a bar on the beach called AJ's that has a happy hour buffet every Friday from 5-7. We sat around and ate, drank, and talked for three hours.
I have to get out to these islands more than once every five years.
I'm not sure what we are going to do now that it is raining. I'm going to try to convince Emily to go see The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with me. She hasn't been too keen to see the movie since she never read the books.
We are also going to go have dinner at a restaurant called Coffee Care. It is on the road that leads from Puerto Rico up to Capital Hill. I think it is owned by an American, so lots of Americans go there. We're going because they have a special Christmas menu. Should be fun.
