Merry Christmas Everyone

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, 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 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 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!
Adios Chums
