Michnus, love reading your stories and checking out the awesome photos. I have been following you from the beginning and have watched you grow as both a writer and a photographer. Your English has improved dramatically! I teach English to non native speakers. I ALWAYS tell my students that the most important part of speaking is to be able to convey your thoughts and feelings. Grammar and 'the right word' be damned! You are not just a traveler; you are an entertainer (and a pretty good one at that). Please keep on keeping us entertained!!! P.S. When are you guys coming to Japan!?
