Nice tea time I had today

"Cake set"

I dropped by a coffee shop after visiting the Paper Museum in a town called Ino-cho. What's on top of the cake was not a chestnut but pear compote. The brown-colored gelatin layer was caramel-flavored.

The people there were super-nice. The lady who works there drew me a nice map when I asked the way to the closest tram stop. I was too tired and forgot about time, so it was already 20 minutes past their closing time when I checked out, but they never said anything about that... They just nicely gave me a coupon book, and kept regretting not having enough time to give me a lot more information about sightseeing in Kochi.

P.S. Click here to share the good time I had today ;)

Hey MrsT,
I agree. I was lucky to stumble into a place like that.

Hi Reid,
It was nice. With only a hint of bitterness, it was a good match with the pear compote.
