An email from Margaret, who is currently working over in London for a few months (lucky):
So my friend Susie is doing what I”m doing work-wise, but in Osaka, and for a year. She goes to visit a friend in the burbs outside Osaka and writes me this – (and see attached pic)
“then today we went to this hilarious (but good) place called U.K. diner. i figured it was british food but instead it was a university of kentucky themed restaurant! UK gear all over the place and a motorcycle inside and american food!”
i mean that’s amazing. i have no idea what the link between japan and U Kentucky is, but it’s strong. Meg – I wonder if they televised the NCAA game there and all wore jorts???!!!
