10:11 two ladies from Kyoto
Dear Shaded Viewers,

I was having lunch today with Benjamin Seroussi at Toraya. We were discussing a fun film project when my favorite two ladies from Kyoto walked through the door. Normally when I see them for their yearly visit I'm with Shoji so he can translate as they do not speak French or English. Alas, Shoji is still in Kyoto this week. Hopefully he will be back before the end of next week and we can visit them and do another little flip NVU.
