Background:
-Look at the 1st Gari Columbus post!

Meal info:
-My friend Victor and I sat at the sushi bar and just ordered omakase.
-We got a mix of sashimi and sushi for our omakase. After trying it, I think I prefer just sushi.
-Victor took pictures with his Nikon D600 (he has a real camera!), and I took some pictures with my iPhone 4S. You’ll see a mix of our photos here.
