Mark's log of a year in Australia - and its continuing repercussions
Thursday, December 25, 2014
I usually spend Christmas with my parents back in California. This year I had to make do with FaceTime - and Japanese family filled in the rest! Until the near-midnight service at St. Albans I spent Christmas Eve
with friends and their eight-year-old daughter (presents! cake!), and on Christmas headed out of the city to Japanese family friends I've known so long they are family! Hard to imagine a better Christmas feast
than this cavalcade of tempura, much of it vegetables grown in our friends' two gardens (they raise a hundred different kinds of vegetables, fruits and herbs in a year!)! Warmest wishes of the season to all!
