Back from Japan

October 22, 2007

Back from Japan. A crazy, bizarre, wonderful trip. Among other
things, I:

  1. Sat at the bar where Bill Murray first saw Scarlett in Lost in Translation.
  2. Got attacked by deer outside of a temple in Nara.
  3. Fell in love.
  4. Saw Mt. Fuji from the window of the Shinkansen, or “bullet train.”
  5. Ate many, many things which I had no idea what they were.
  6. Bowed about one million times.
  7. Got offered a naughty massage.
  8. Shook the hands of about 50 Japanese schoolchildren, who wanted to try out their English on me.
  9. Saw all these tiny, nearly three-person bars down back alleys in Osaka.
  10. Stayed in five-star hotels nightly.

… and much, much more.

    I’m writing to request more information about item 3. Kindly spill.

    I second that emotion – more on number 3 please. Also, if you could expand on the subject of the naughty massage…was it offered by a man in a trenchcoat? “Hey man, you lookin’ to score a naughty massage?”

    Wow – how did all of those things happen at the same time? That must’ve been one crazy train ride…
