Japan was great. I stayed there for less than a week but saw so much, it is material for a separate blog almost. It was the best vacation I ever had.
Overall I can say that the Japanese are completely crazy. They have insane pachinko parlors, smoke more than I thought it was humanly possible, boys dress like girls, girls dress like whores, men are kind of mean and women are the nicest people I ever met.
It is just an amazing country. You have to be good to fit 130 million people in such a small place and still make it work. If you think Sao Paulo and NY are large, you need to see Tokyo. It is massive beyond belief.
I still need to recover from the trip (and read a week worth of email) but then I’ll post more.
For now, I’ve changed the header to show the view I had from my hotel room.
