Tanya & Bryan Duke's RV-6 Panel Rebuild
14 Jul 05: Kon nichi wa from Japan! I'm hanging out north of Tokyo a couple hours drive...
not getting any work done on the plane. Globe trotting is so cool though. The people here are
incredibly friendly & polite. You get better service at McDonalds here than in most sit-down
restaurants in the states. Wild. I wanted to go to Mt. Fuji this week, but the weather has been
rainy with very low ceilings the whole time - can't see Mt. Fuji if it's in the clouds. I did lots
of touring around the local area though.
You've all seen funny tourists somewhere that don't speak your language & are taking photos of
everything. I've been that guy this week. Yup, guilty.
The planes at the airport had funny painted tails...
It's amazing how much water there is everywhere. This is in Tokyo...
More Tokyo. Crazy busy & lots of very bright lights (even for someone from Las Vegas!)...
There are lots of awesome gardens here. Areas like this are generally perfectly kept up &
just look great...
Mr. Stone Samurai guards lots of things here. I can't seem to find a cool hat like his though...
People ride bicycles everywhere here. Whoever the company is that makes the little
baskets everyone has on their bike is a gajillionaire...
The majority of the advertisements here totally crack me up. I have no idea what this even says.
Ya gotta laugh though...
Vegas doesn't even have beer vending machines in the streets. Amazing!
OMG, they have octopus in the grocery stores! (yeah, I had my camera in a grocery store)
No really, people ride their bikes everywhere...except for where they walk I guess.
Comical translations were everywhere on signs. This is a bar in the town of Fussa...
I'll be on the way home soon. The trip out here took over 24 hours & the trip back is going
to take longer because of delays. I'll be dead tired on Saturday, but I gotta get back to work on
