The Slow Boat From China

March 5, 2008

Last Updated:

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.

    Time for an update on poweredbytofu- don’t ya think? New Zealand’s long lines at the computers don’t allow one to lolligag I am sure. Tell us a short interesting happening while visiting Australia or NZ?

    I’m not sure I could handle those squatty toilets. I mean, I guess I’d *have* to.. but.. still

    No dryer sheets with formaldehyde and other chemicals! 7th Gen has some and so do a few other companies. What are you needing them for?
