That was Now -- this is Then

Cherry petal snow in Kyota and a 'secret' Zen garden. The friend who introduced him to it admonished Perrin to not say a word to the tourist hordes in his guidebook to Japan.

If this doesn't cheer you up --

nothin' will. Keep an eye on that left hand, +Bisbo Nian. Nob Sugino is a master when it comes to lap  steel technique. Note the multi-bender unit on the Duesenberg. Gives you effects similar to pedal steel guitar (raising or lowering sting tone on the fly).

Latin aside, those fish are the blight of local rivers.  It is illegal to return one to the water alive, if caught.  The name should be transposed to "crap".

Yuko says, "Ah!"

After I spent a couple of hours with two classes of Perrin's English students (lots of laughs), our friend, Yuko, took us to a rotating sushi palace with her son, Ryuta. Great system. You eat to your heart's content and then they count your sushi plates when you're done. 

Yuko and her son (and his then girlfriend) visited us the summer before last. A tire came off my SUV when we took them up to see Apex ski village and were heading back down the mountain. (That was pretty mortifying for both me and my favorite mechanic.) All the same, Yuko told Perrin that the tire experience was very useful when it came to her understanding of the future conditional tense in English. As in:  "...I could have died."

I ate at one in San Francisco where they had a little river with boats carrying the plates floating around ; ) Enjoy your garden +Peter Lindelauf

Shrine of the Lost Canadian

In Kyoto, my son, Perrin, lives right across the street from the site of the most famous Japanese swordfight and a beautiful little Zen garden called Shisendo (Poets' Hall). I made this inukshuk  partly to thank Perrin's ex-patriate neighbors for a great dinner and conversation on my last night in Kyoto. And partly to irk the parking lot attendant lady who was just about the only unpleasant Japanese person I encountered. When she saw me drinking coffee on my son's doorstep, she hurried to her car to get her purse with a dramatic flourish. I haven't heard yet if my Shrine of the Lost Canadian is still standing or not.

Her Californian good looks have not suffered at Canada's hands, Peter.  Tell her to include one of those photos with her application and it will be approved overnight :-)

It takes a lot to laugh --

it takes a train to fly. (Bob Dylan) Mount Fuji from the Shinkansen bullet train at 320 kmh or 200 mph and en route from Kyoto to Tokyo.

The Shinkansen slowed down a couple of times over several hours -- and stopped for a couple of stations -- but as far as I could tell we were traveling pretty well flat out coming and going from Tokyo to Kyoto, +Greg Batten . Compared to Canadian trains, it was a thrill.
