In a Foreign L.A.nd
Wolfheinrich arrived after me the next day in the same hotel. We were worried that they wouldn't let him check in early to the room, but he was able to check in. Wolfheinrich's room had a much better view too! He's got the pool view. So I took a photo while I was visiting.
Yakuri. We planned on meeting on Wednesday, but that went astray. We did meet quite early in the day on Thursday. I was in my cosplay and was ready to meet her. I didn't tell her I was going as the male version of Mugi from K-ON's ending song, Listen!! I only told her I would be in cosplay. It was quite a reaction when she figured out who I was cosplaying, lol.
Later on I got quite hungry, so around dinner time Yakuri took me to Little Tokyo for Japanese curry. It's actually my first time having Japanese curry (Glico instant curry aside...). Damn good I must say! I have to have more now! Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it ^^; It's a lump of rice covered with beef curry and a soft-boiled egg on top. Really, really good! I did take a picture of that space shuttle in Little Tokyo though. We ventured into Kinokuniya and Anime Jungle as well while we were there before they closed. It made me plan on what to buy from them at the convention, lol. Thanks for taking me to Little Tokyo, Yaku ^_^
The plane was delayed leaving L.A. I had to wait inside the plane while it's being delayed for an hour. Thankfully the plane from Seattle to Vancouver was delayed to accommodate our late flight. At least I was able to take advantage of the free wi-fi on Alaska Airlines. It's free on the plane until July 31st, otherwise it would be $13 bucks for however long the flight is...
I was very tired on Monday when I got back and had to work 16 hours later. I didn't have time to sort all the photos yet, but will try to post the rest as soon as possible. I'm gonna break the AX posts up a little bit since there are LOTS of stories to tell! It felt like quite a long time when I was gone when it was actually only 5 days ^^; And it felt very dream-like when I tried to remember this awesome weekend. More to come!
