The Slow Boat From China

Sushi in JapanAnd I`m back! I completely forgot about the China censorship issue, so I was only partially surprised when I couldn`t login from China. It`s been a busy week! We just arrived in Osaka this morning off a 48 hour ferry boat from Shanghai. Good Times! :) I`ll be filling in the gaps of the last week eventually, but for now, I`m alive! Japan is so different than China. China was a great experience, but it`s nice to be back in a 1st world country. Biggest difference… the toilet situation (not a big fan of squat toilets, but that`s another story).

I`ve had my first real Japan sushi lunch, yummm! And now it`s off for some exploring! I`ll try to post some pictures of China soon.
