Retreat Weekend

Our company had it's follow-up training this past weekend. Kind of a corporate retreat type thing I guess. Meetings, seminars, speeches, good food, and a free weekend at the hotel.

The thing was, there were like 25 foreign teachers from my company there, all from different places. A lot of the regular faces, and a couple new ones were down to party. The hotel was the shit. On a mountain top with views of the ocean on one side, Yokohama on another, and Mt. Fuji in the distance on another. The rooms were cozy as hell. I took the most epic shower, with multiple shower heads, massage settings, and all sorts of lotions and shit. Hey, it doesn't take much to make my day.

We all got dressed up in the matching Yukatas that came in the rooms and began the festivities. I'll post some photos soon, when I get them.

After the retreat, a few of us hit up the "American Bar" izakaya in Shibuya. It sounds like it would be some lame foreigner hangout, but its totally not. It just looks like Cheers or something inside. But the clientelle is mostly Japanese people having a good time. Good cheap food, good cheap beer, its a good time. So how the hell did we run up a bill like this??!!!? Lol.
