Every good trip recently has begun with a delicious Japanese meal. We managed to find a relatively well-priced restaurant in JFK that perfectly fulfilled my need for food and didn’t leave us feeling heavy and sick from fast food. I wish I’d ordered edamame instead of the strawberry cocktail that made drinking through a straw very difficult! The birds, by the way, were a hilarious addition to the experience in JFK. They went everywhere together. If one flew to the drinking fountain, the others went with him. If one relocated to on top of the TV’s, the others followed her. It was adorable.
