Back from Tokyo, Japan

I’m home and missing Tokyo already … technically missing Jules but yes, I do wish I was there for like 1 year … I’ll settle for 3 months teaching English or learning Japanese whichever I can get to do πŸ˜› I did fall in love with Tokyo, yet at the same time I’m grateful to be home … more than that I’m happier that I don’t have to slap on enough moisturiser to drown an elephant anymore πŸ™‚ Thank God for humidity!!!

I’m also very happy to report I did most of everything I had planned to do and as luck would have it, the sakuras came into full bloom while I was there. It was truly a sight to behold … that’s not to say I wasn’t disappointed to find out that Cherry Blossoms are not native to Japan. No siree, they’re apparently from China. Goes to show what good marketing and branding can do for you πŸ™‚

It is a real pretty flower, huh? So I found time to soak in the culture, enjoy some hanami (cherry blossom watching), shop a little, even ate some very yummy Japanese vegetarian food and of course, spend time hunting down enough Totoro products to keep me happy for a while. It was a great trip and was glad I got to share it with Jules and Erv … not quite sure how the two of them felt about babysitting me though πŸ˜›Β  Here’s a picture of us at the beginning of my adventures, last Friday.

This is just the beginning, will have the details once I sort through my 600 over pictures πŸ™‚
