Here are a few shots at the casinos in Atlantic City.
A huge buffe which was reasonably priced.
A huge casino area with tons of machines. It does not excite us much but for someone.
A short vacation to Atlantic City, which is a Las Vegas in the East Coast. This New York style deli serves outrageous size of everything . Our sandwitch was more than enough for two people.
Their deserts are as big as the sandwiches but not this time. As high as one FOOT tall.
We spent the day in the city today. Even we live in Brooklyn or else, we don't go to the city every weekend (too many tourists to deal with).
A gogeeous sunshine invited us to go to the city this time.
You can't ignore Ess-a, if you come to the city. Still the best in our opinion.
The skyline from the park has been changed so much...
After a long time out of country - Amsterdam, Japan, and Amsterdam - I am finally back in NYC. I totally missed the cherry blossoms this year again.
This was my second cooking today with the intension to make some leftovers. I will be in NYC for 2 weeks, so many more times to cook without no rush this time.
After visiting many places, today is our last full day here in Japan. It's called eat or die meaning you have to eat good food as much as you can. We followed the guidance by going to Kushi-Katsu, Okonomi-Yaki and Ramen. All snack size in my openipn, and we got back around 4 pm to be ready for dinner time meal.
My concern now is if I can fit in the cloths from Tuesday...
Osaka is our final stop of this trip. We checked in the new hotel nested in the highest building in Japan. 51st floor corner suite is one of or simply the best room I have ever had.
Stunning views as we have two walls with floor to ceiling windows.
You have to go to the Tigers game if you are in the are. Fun experience especially when they celebrated the 7th inning.
My friend's husband owns this little French restaurant in Fukuoka. We found out that he is pretty famous in Fukuoka.
His dishes were as sophisticated as any restaurants in NYC, and we had one of the best meals in our lives.
We promised that we invite them to NYC in near future. A great day.
I did not know Miyajima was so closed to Hiroshima. 30 minutes train ride and 10 minutes ferry ride brought us this spiritual island. After GW, many but not crazy number of people were there. Against blue sky, young greens were so beautiful and breathtaking.
Sushi usually means Edo Mae sushi, but traditionally sushi was pressed to preserve the fish for long time (deliver it to kings hundred years ago). On the way to Hiroshima, we needed to change the trains at Okayama, where this pressed sushi was purchased.
We really tasted fresh yet nicelly marinated fish. Yummy.
When you earn some sort of status with airline or hotel, it gives you some benefits, like upgrade to a better seat or room. On top, this hotel chain gives some welcome gift. I usually choose points, but this time I chose fruits, ice cream and wine. I did not expect this formal service, and it was well worth than points I could have gotten.
Chinese food sounds cheap and quick in US but there are many high-end Chinese restaurants in Japan.
I had a nice meal with two old friends I have known for more than 25 years. Old stuff and new stuff, 2 hours were not enough to catch up. Till next time.
