So I've been pretty busy lately. As the end of my stay approaches I've been trying to actually accomplish something at work (to little avail). Also I've had to write a couple other things and I apparently have a very limited tolerance for writing of any kind.
To further heighten suspense regarding what I've been up to, I'll leave you with this few tidbits:
I discovered Beef Sushi.
Takashi came to Tokyo.
Pablo the cat has ceased protesting the loss of his bedroom.
Now I'm off to Kyoto, Yakushima and other points unknown. I'll have a lot of time on trains so maybe I'll get something written to be posted upon return. Hopefully, though, I'll stay busy on my trip and you'll all just be left to wonder what became of me.
