Oh, and boba.
Afterwards we took our frozen beverages out into the rain and wind (yeah...), crossed the street, and took a very short trip up and down a hill on a bright orange funicular.
It was awesome (despite the Grumpiest Ticket Taker Ever).
Also -- and here's the part they will remember forever -- I almost fell over backwards when the ride suddenly started and I was taking pictures instead of holding onto something, BUT managed to regain my balance and not spill a green tea boba all over myself (though I maaaaaay have let out that god-awful Julia Childs-ean surprised hoot I have allegedly made on other similarly startling-turned-embarassing occasions).
(when the car suddenly lurches forward, please do your best to ignore the hooting of the woman holding the camera and the green tea boba)
