Hello Goodbye

So this is my first entry for 2 months. This is partly due to laziness, but mostly due to the fact that I moved house and lost the internet again. I’ll probably write about that a bit more when I get a chance. The good news is that now I have a lovely fiber optic cable delivering the world to me at a lovely 100Mbps. And it’s back just in time for me to mention that I’m leaving. Not permanently, that is, but on vacation, to Vancouver for 10 days. I’m assured by everybody I’ve met that it’s one of the best cities in the world, so what better place to go to leave Japan for the first time since I arrived? It’s going to be interesting to see just how accustomed to the Japanese way of life I’ve become.

So far, there are no concrete plans apart from watching a Canucks game one evening. I also might travel up to Whistler for a day – no snow yet, but the town’s still open and I can dream! The time difference is about minus 16 hours and the flight time only 8 hours with the prevailing winds. I haven’t figured out what that will do to my body clock, but it’s bound to be strange. Stupidly, I’ve just started watching ‘Lost’, a great show to be sure, but repeatedly watching a plane crash is probably not the best preparation for a long haul flight!
