Reunions, Yosakoi, and the 2016 Battle of the Udon (Part 3) / 再開、よさこい、と2016年うどん天下一決定戦 (パート3)

After eating our fair share of udon, Ed and I decided it was time for a little liquid refreshment. We found a booth serving a Virgo craft beer - and ordered their Virgo beer tasting set which included four different kinds of beer - mocha brown ale, wine red ale, honey lemon ale, and a standard lager.

Just in case you thought Ed was a figment of my imagination, we really haven't seen each other in about 30 years! It was quite fortunate that him and his daughter came when they did as my wife and I would moving to Aomori in a couple of months.

And seeing how we still had room for dessert, we went to a favorite shop of me and my wife's called Silkream. I can't remember who had what but all I can say is that this is a great place for desserts!

I only got to see Ed for this one day as he was on a tight schedule and a tight budget as well but we did have a very nice visit. I hope to see him in his hometown sometime in the near future.
