Och aye the noo!
We had a fab night on saturday night, celebrating the birthday of Robbie Burns, of all people! I know it was about a month too late, but it was a lot of fun and the Scottish dancing classes paid off! Neil and I scrubbed up pretty well, especially Neil in his sharp tuxedo. It was held in a big function room at the ANA Hotel in Akasaka, with a massive dance floor and lots of tartan-draped dining table around it. After a special highland dancing demonstration done by the Tokyo Bluebells, a slap up meal of haggis and whiskey, and lots of toasts to the lads and lassies, we flung our hearts out until 1am - Strip the Willow, and the Dashing White Sargeant were among them. Needless to say, we had aching limbs and feet by the end of it, but a fab night was had by all.
