As I write this I'm looking across the road at a small Chinese man sitting on a rickshaw wearing a Santa hat!! Its hot enough that my face is melting so not really very Christmasy. Hey Ho here's wishing you all a very happy Xmas and a great new year.
In Malaysia now but leaving for Osaka, Japan tomorrow. Rough plan is to spend 3 to 4 weeks in the Land of the rising sun before moving on to South Korea. Thought I'd visit sharpish before Uncle Kim across the border turns the lot to dust.
Will write more from Japan in the next week or so until them some photos of shop fronts (everyone loves a good shop front) a lazy dog and a women who clearly can't read the sign.
