Deren sent us on a scavenger hunt through the city to get acquainted with the surroundings and also a chance to visit some of the historical sites and places as well as turn it into a sort of adventure. It was definitely a great time and then afterward, we took a trolley back across the city.

Our first Wawa!

Neither Raphael or I have not ever set foot in Philadelphia. Through the past year I’ve heard so much about it from my roommate Deren. So we made plans throughout the year to make a visit at some point in the summer. So we did. This is indeed a great city! We had a great time traveling between Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In New Jersey I got the chance to see something I haven’t seen in YEARS: 蛍 (ほたる) [fireflies]. It was great! We spent a lot of time eating frozen yogurt and shortening it’s name between “FroYo” and “Frogurt.” SweetEndings is the name of the place were Deren worked. Their Frogurt had to be some of the best I’ve ever tasted and the best part is that it’s self-serve! So I know I ate so much of it. Just too delicious to miss!

Sneaky Little Restaurant.

Sneaky Little Restaurant.

I got to return to Boston for one day to enjoy the holiday with my am♥r. I have had the biggest craving for Ethiopian cuisine for quite some time so finally we found a great place nearby the movie theater where we saw Up for the second time. The restaurant, called Addis Red Sea, is located at 544 Tremont Street and was lovely in just about everyway.

Okay so today was rather eventful. My first time going out for Japanese Hibachi. Before going I looked up some really interesting information. It is only called Hibachi outside of Japan becuase the actual word ‘shichirin’ is too difficult to pronounce for foreigners, or so they think. however, I dont’ think that’s the case…It’s just another way for the Japanese to think they’re superior to all others. Afterward was mini-golfing which I sucked at. Tristan’s score was well under par but mine was pretty bad…by 3 shots. I hope to take Raphael out to Hibachi and mini-golf too someday! I know he’d love it ♥
