There are some nice folks in a big trawler at the end of our dock. They took a trip to the San Blas and then returned with some fresh tuna. There is an unwritten cruisers law that says if you see a Japanese person you must give them some of your tuna. As everyone knows Japanese and Tuna are linked in a spiritual way.
The crew of Bella were obviously familiar with this rule and gave Hideko a big chunk of wonderful Black Fin. So we invited all of the other Japanese in the marina (Nirai and Nobu) over for sushi. We didn't have a huge selection but it worked out. We made some kapa maki (cucumber rolls), Tuna nigiri and maki, and we also had some yummy King Mackeral in the freezer that was tasty.
