Whoa…She’s in Yokohama, with Loco!

That’s right, I spent most of this afternoon with the lovely Amanda from Whoa…I’m in Japan blog.

We met up at Yokohama station, went to Bay Quarters Kua Aina for burgers (best burgers in Yokohama) and chatted about everything from nihongo to junk food. (-;

Kawaii deshou?

Good times! Good times!

Perhaps we might get into some collaborative efforts in the near future…who knows? But, today was not about business. Under a brilliant sun, it was all about chilling (literally) and getting to know each other, offline. And that we did.

Thanks Amanda for coming out to Yokohama. Next time I’ll definitely pop over to Tokyo.

And, everyone, if you’re looking for some fresh commentary about life in Japan, and fresh ideas from a writer fresh from the outside world, Amanda’s your girl! She’s the freshest!

Check out Amanda’s blog here. I see great things on the horizon.

Y’all better act like y’all know!

    Thanks for a spectacular time in Yokohama Loco! I felt like I already knew a thing or two about you from reading your blog, and it's great to know you're just as deep and just as real in-person. I look forward to getting together again real soon.

    P.S. why does that picture have that "I'm posing with my favourite celebrity" vibe? LOL. Hmm, I don't look particularly relaxed in that picture, but trust me everyone Loco is an easy-going guy.

      I was about to say the same thing! I can imagine that loco has a bit of that "larger than life" aura to him. He is a very tall gentleman.

    Ahhh, I like her blog, I enjoy reading the perspectives of black people in Japan! I'm pumped this is my first semester of Japanese and I'm hoping to join you folks over there soon!

    Damn, she knows how to do a blog. Only about half a year old (if I'm not mistaken) and already 70+ followers and a really nice-looking website. I'll have to peruse it more thoroughly when I have a little free time.

    Look at those two hotties. Is everyone in Yokohama beautiful these days?

    Sometimes I do wish I was actually in Japan so that I can meet up with some fellow bloggers…it turns out that I’m everywhere else but Nihon…sigh
