My favorite place in Phoenix

I think my most favorite thing to do in the world (not an exaggeration) is feed the koi fish in the pond at the Japanese Friendship Garden in Phoenix. Matt suspects it's a power thing. I mean, I have the fish food (which are actually Cheerios), and the fish just gather at my feet. I just want to be loved, okay?

Anyway, to me, it's like Disneyland, but better, because there's no walking and getting tired and waiting in lines. And feeding the fish is just SO FUN. So, if you live in Phoenix, you should go (and soon, because it closes in the summer)!

PS We also got a Jiro Dreams of Sushi poster for free! Matt and I have been dying to see that film, but it's not playing anywhere in Arizona. Has anyone seen it out there?

  10. Kristine, you are soooo adorable! hehe i loved the "I just want to be loved" part. 

    Those koi fish are HUGE! Is there a list of things you can/can't feed the fish? I had no idea they would enjoy cherrios.

  14. Jiro Dreams of Sushi is totally amazing. My husband and I are vegetarian- but let me tell you if we could ever eat Jiro's sushi- we would just have to cheat : ) Get it on netflix once it comes out!
