    Sun is quickly setting as we walk around the Japanese tourist trap

    We're close enough to the next town that it won't matter if we ride back in the dark. Wouldn't be the first time... Might be kind of cold though...

    It's difficult to Samuraiz all our experiences in Japan, but I'll try to Cut to the chase and get the Point across.

    Perhaps the pun is mightier than the sword?

    Putting something on paper is always a good starting point, even if you tear it up and throw it away. At least it’s a start!

    Well, we don't like to plan anything, so this is just a back-of-the-napkin sketch. We'll probably just end up living in the moment and playing it by ear. Maybe do something entirely unexpected like go to the living room before going to the kitchen one day.

    And of course, it'll take us three times longer to do this than anyone else.

    And it'll probably rain on the way.

    Does it have a rain simulator? Can it work without having fire/ambulance/police show up?

    Am ok, but concerned. Hoping to somehow, someday get back on the road and consider this all just a bizarre twist in what has been a bizarre journey.

    One more time, a big thank you for continuing to post about your travels. I realize this is a long way behind "real" time, but it is still entertaining to check in here and see a brief update almost daily. In our current environment, positive distractions are very welcome.

    Cheers, Wayne
