Made it Through Tokyo

Well I have made it through Tokyo in one piece and now getting ready for Bangkok.

I feel that in a short time I saw all the major sites, Tsjuki, Shibuya, Meiji Shrine, etc... my legs are telling me that I saw quite a lot!

Overall, I really enjoyed my time here. By far Tokyo is the closest to western city that is in Asia as I have ever seen (Bangkok being my limited perspective). Another thing that was surprising to me was it being relatively cold (around low to mid 50s Fahrenheit).

Tokyo was easy to get around and all the people were very helpful with whatever questions I had, though it was not always simple to communicate due to the language barrier. However, I would recommend Tokyo as a city everyone should absolutely visit if they have the opportunity.

Hope to get some pictures up soon!

Hi Charlton,

Back at work - Monday morning. Already thinking about lunch. Joe stopped by and updated me on his Ohio trip. He went spelunking, which sounds like something he might do. Graham's turkey turned out OK after all the worries.

I knew you should have been training! You are going to kill your poor legs on one of our whirlwind trips.

Wonder if Bob and the guys went out for Thai food to celebrate your arrival in Bangkok?!
