Japan, here we come!
I have barely adjusted to the time difference with Africa and am now off to Japan in two days. Okay, I'll stop whining. The trip sounds fantastic and I am lucky to visit two such very different continents in a matter of weeks. The first three nights are in Tokyo, then to Hakone, Osaka, and on to Fukuoaka. I lecture in Osaka and Fukuoka. When the last lecture is finished, I head back to Tokyo to meet Hunter, my stepson, when he flys in. We'll divide our time between Tokyo and Nikko. Stay tuned for reports on sake, Kobe beef, puffer fish (Fugu), sushi, a traditional kaiseki dinner, and whatever else we can find to eat or drink. Although I might hit the gym once or twice, there is probably no need to check the site if you're looking for tips on exercise or moderation. Oh, and don't hope that they prepare the puffer fish improperly. I have already purchased a round-trip ticket.
