What do you get when you cross 15 foreign women and a Saturday night?

A rocking good time, that's what!

Yesterday after I taught my Saturday senior class- right after I taught my class, K and the girls drove me to the station and I jumped on the train to Nagoya. A mere two hours later (I'm an Aussie, so that doesn't even count as a long trip when there's a beer (or two) waiting at the other end) I arrived in Nagoya, changed from work clothes to out-on-the-town clothes in the toilets and headed out for a fabulous night out with 14 other foreign women. We're all members of AFWJ in this area and had travelled up to 3 hours (and she's not even an Aussie!) for a night on the town. We had members from Ishikawa, Nagano, Aichi, Mie and Osaka (not this area but all welcome!) We just talked and talked and drank some and ate some more and talked and talked and talked some more and it was just a really fabulous night. All the women in AFWJ are married to Japanese men so even when you meet someone for the first time you have so much in common that the conversation just flows. Well doesn't hurt if you are a total chatterbox either of course...

I love where we live and never want to live in the city but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy a night out every once in a while- especially with such fabulous company to share it with!

Definitely!

What's transport like between yours and Nagoya? There are plenty of fabulous women who'll put you up for the night if you want to stay over, too!

Actually it is quick, 45 mins by shinkansen or about 2 hours by local (I think that it can be reduced if I get off JR at one point and change to the private Meitetsu? line)

I am going to need a job to fund my social life!!
