Booze Schmooze March 5, 2010

The other night we went to a fancy party in Naha celebrating the launch of a new brand of awamori, the Okinawan version of sake. Whereas sake is made of fermented rice, awamori is distilled Thai rice. It has a kind of floral taste, it doesn’t burn your throat, and my dad swears it can’t give you a hangover. I can stand to drink it, which means a lot coming from me.

The other girl here is Sigrunn, our fellow intern from Norway. Here’s her Japan-trip blog — it’s fun to try to read Norwegian! Together we ate about 40 two-inch sandwiches each and schmoozed in broken Japanese with some businessmen speaking broken English.
