I'm in Japan. yes. i got here.
quick summary so far...
the people are amazing.
the place is amazing.
the scenery is amazing,
the temples and shrines are amazing.
the food is... um... interesting. I'm just never really quite sure what it is!!!!
the place is absolutely SPOTLESS.... i'm talking... NO rubbish in the streets at all.
But the biggest realisation i've come to in the last couple of days is something much more important than that.... Japanese women have feet of steel. EVERY single one of them is trudging around the city and on the trains ALL day with the HIGHEST stilettos you've ever seen. Even the ones who are standing up all day for their job... huge heels. I just don't know how they do it.
GOING skiing tomorrow. i'm a little bit excited :-p
