Wedding --- The Ambassador of Hachijojima Island

Seafood Plate
Un'anguilla marittima e la grirlia di vegetali, truffe ed un strombo assentono

If you are Italian, shouldn't be a problem.  The above is probably... conger and vegetable grill with truffle and whelk.

This shell fish was chewy and yet I loved that texture.  The conger was also delicious !

As to the reception, I was impressed with the couple's harmony, their happy, proud attitudes and sharing their happiness with us.  We were all very happy.  Then, adding to that....... the father of the gloom made wonderful, funniest speech !

We laughed and laughed.... he is the great ambassador of Hachijojima.

The gloom is from that island and the father goes....
" If you come to the island, there, sitting at that table is the owner of the bed and breakfast, we can introduce you to them, then, if you'd like to buy some land there,
Mr. XXX is also here today, then if you need to build a house, there is...."

It was sooooo funny.  I 've never visited that island, so when I travel there, I will definitely ask him for more information and introducing me to his contacts.
