Josef Budde


立ち寄ったG.HYATTでMr.Josef Buddeと一緒に。
香港G.Hyatt誕生前から25年のお付き合い。嬉しい変わらない笑顔。Parisのビストロを2人で食べ歩いたのはもう何年前の事でしょうか?
夜はイタリア大使Petrone夫人に御招待を受けて、大使館へ。2人のお嬢さんとミラノから来た共通の友人を囲んで楽しい夕食会。桜も最後と着物でした。
A picture with Mr. Josef Budde at Grand Hyatt in Tokyo.
I have known him for 25 years, even before Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong was open. He always smiles and that makes me happy too. I wonder how many years ago we ate and walked around bistros in Paris.
I was invited to have a dinner at Italian Embassy tonight by Mrs. Petrone of Italian ambassador. We had an enjoyable dinner with 2 of her daughters and our common friends from Milano. In this cherry blossom season, it's the last time I wore Kimono.
