Well boys and girls i was planning to put a big message here.....but after a frantic time MSNing i now realize that i am running out of time (Big dinner, gran-parents......im shaking allready)
So big Merry Bloody Xmas to you all.
So here are some tips for you all from my travels (or as many as 30 sec allows)
- Get a day pass for the subway, take the Yamanote line.......it goes everywhere you need to go.
- Akihabara is not cheap, computer prices there are roughly 2 x NZ. But the place is awesome to visit.
- Bandaids can be used as insulation tape, fingernail clippers can cut power cords, viola.......power supply for laptop with Japannese plug
- Put money on money tray, slide tray to attendant.
- Tokyo = superclean. Even gas mask wearing clean.
- Big bore limo scooters are common.
- Pimps wear big cashmere coats, but no one fucks with a 6ft Gaijun (outsider) wearing a full length Cashmere coat!!!! Mafia!!!!!
- Sitting the the backseat of a car, from airport to city......culture shock.
- No traffic issue, just personality ones
- OSH do not exist here, plank of wood is sufficent bridging between an elevator and the 20th floor of an apartment building.
- I have a new definition of dirty.
- Food = cheap, life = cheap, everything else is still relative to NZD.
- Good infirstructure, no cleaning.
- Don't pay half price for a car.......you get half the car. I saw a VW Polo.......same shape, same motor......but all other dimensions must have been interpreted as cm not inches!
Right best i got sit at a table, eat food, be polite and not have a single clue as to what people are saying!

Bloody Asians everywhere!!! even in my shots. Here is a Kodak moment for Millie - i reckon its an advertising shot of the Cape.
Right now back to the Rest of the trip.
Below in random order is the various photos/films of the trip guys.....its probably all ready spilling onto the next page. I've tried to keep as many pics of V off the film, as lovely Yuqi will kill me if i put the few hundred photos she took of herself up on here.
Why was i an Engineer again???
