Andy's Japanese Class

[Monday 6th June]
Chie flew off to Moscow this morning, where she'd be on a business trip for the next three nights.
My friend Andy is currently doing Japanese lessons on Monday evenings at SOAS, and tonight he invited me along to join him for drinks afterwards with his fellow students. The teacher came along too, and as a result we were in one of those odd and slightly embarrassing situations where a bunch of non-Japanese people felt the need to try and speak Japanese to each other. I'm almost reluctant to use my Japanese with people who are actually having proper lessons, much like people learning to drive are advised to only have lessons with a qualified instructor rather than a member of their family, so as to avoid picking up bad habits.
Anyway, it was briefly quite exciting to be back in a student union again, albet the one at SOAS where presumably the majority of the students are doing these kinds of evening classes, etc.
After the rest of the students left, Andy and I continued on to the Queen's Larder on the other side of Russell Square, and then finally the Old Nick in Holborn.
