I've been relaxed today as I set up stuff in my new pad here in Tokyo and listen to the rain. When I want to take pictures the rain makes me angry but relaxing at home it is wonderful. Tomorrow I will venture out again to find the grocery, a good 100 yen stores and other important things. Tonight I am going to enjoy some more writing and then watch the latest Bond film online again.
Peace & Love,
My life seems to change by the moment these days. As I was trying to drag myself to the travel agency without much luck I got a new job offer. This offer was too good to turn down so I said yes. Thus, I will be moving to Tokyo and working as an ALT (Assistant Language Teacher) again at one public junior high school. I am very excited about living in Tokyo again and being able to stay in Japan.
Soon I must pack up the computer so this will be my last post from Nagoya.
Peace and Love,

Hachiko the living dog was born in 1932 and belonged to a professor named Eisaburo Uyeno. They were great friends and Hachiko always followed him to the train in the morning and waited for him there at night.
In 1952 Professor Uyeno went to work with Hachiko as usual but got sick and died before he could return to his faithful friend. Hachiko continued to return to the station each and every day for the next ten years until he died. Many people noticed how he returned every day and he became a hero in Japan.
The popular Japanese artist Ando Teru created this sculpture in 1948. It was destroyed in the war and re-built after.

To be honest I can't always pour beer properly. If you need a perfect martini I am your man.
