The nabe, which autocorrect is trying to change to babe, is taking a long time to heat up. Tensions rise high, but the water temperature remains low.
Sitting hungry and exhausted of an entire day of exploring and conversation, inevitably we are irritated and frustrated.

Today we went to kichijoji, and the Mori arts museum.
There is currently an incredible exhibition on and I'm pleased we went to see it.
