Happy 2012...

Andrew and I spent the day walking around in Yokohama before heading back to Yokosuka to spend New Years Eve with friends.  We went over to Matt's house where he and Carissa cooked a delicious dinner. 

Bringing in 2012 at the Rice Kitchen.  What a cool beachside bar in Nobi.
The owner of the bar gave our table a bottle of champagne on the house.  Kinda funny to be toasting classy Moet Champagne in plastic Asahi cups...  I love it!

Matt, Matt, and Andrew watching the 1st sunrise of 2012.  Such a good looking group! 
Yep, it was worth waking up really early for!
Amanda, Matt, Matt and Will stayed out all night to catch the sunrise.  I on the other hand decided to get a quick power nap before watching it. 
First sunrise of 2012!  It's a Japanese New Year tradition to catch the first sunrise on the beach.  There were a lot of other people that had the same idea to watch it in Nobi.
Polar Bear Plunge 2012
Amanda, Kat, Kevin, Alawah, Matt and I before the Polar Bear Plunge.  Definitely a lot of second thoughts here... but man I hate peer pressure :)  There was actually a 7.0 earthquake off the coast of Japan seconds before we jumped in.  We noticed it shaking here, but kinda just shook it off and went in anyways.
The gang after the plunge... it wasn't actually as cold as I thought it'd be.  Freezing in the water, but thankfully the air temperature wasn't too bad when we got out.  Still pretty dang cold though!
