Club Leo Going to Freakonomics

Met with Non and Ryo today as part of our monthly Club Leo meeting. This time we went to Shinjuku to watch the movie Freakonomics. The movie was quite boring and it was difficult to understand what they wanted to say with each of the different “stories”.

I am saying this as a listener of the Freakonomics audio book by the same authors. The book is so much better in many aspects. The “stories” are much better and so is the connection between cause and effect that they are explaining. It is fun listening. The movie… Well, both Chie and I fell asleep in the middle of it. Maybe that say it all πŸ™‚

After the movie we all went to a Korean restaurant about 10 minutes walk from the Shinjuku station. The food was quite tasty and we had a fun time, as always.

When we arrived we were so hungry so we ordered a lot of food. Too hungry it turned out, because there was a big gap between what we thought we could eat when we were so hungry and what we actually could eat. In the end we were to full to finish with the traditional Korean noodle dish that we usually finish with πŸ™

On our way back to Shinjuku station we were passed by many policemen. And we could se police busses with bared windows everywhere. It turned out that there was a anti-nuclear power demonstration. The police was there to keep everything in order.

We watched for a few minutes. Not much happened. We went home instead πŸ™‚
