Sayonara Nihon

It had to happen sometime.

Looks like it's three days hence. I am homeless for the moment, having moved out of my apartment on Monday, but my buddy Brad has graciously opened his door to me for the remainder of my time here. A couple more days to wrap up the last few tidbits that have been left untied, and then I'm off. Christian will be here the day after tomorrow and we are heading up to Tokyo for one last hooplah in the biggest, busiest metropolis in the world. ShiBOOYA! The following day, (most likely suffering from intense hangovers,) we will set off for Narita airport and all point beyond. The first place taking focus in our sights is Singapore, and thusly my next report will be coming from there. As such, this blog is now defunct. I will be creating a new space to blog the upcoming journey. Anyone who is not already connected can contact me at the soon to be defunct: madhattah (*nospam*)

There is no possible way to accurately summarize an experience like the one I've had here. And it's a much better story in person anyway. If detail is truly required you'll just have to wait for my book. This country and its generous, polite and honest people are all treasures. The friends I have made here are indelible and the places I have been will remain etched in my memory for rest of my life. I came here thinking that my life was going to be significantly different than back home, and although in many ways it has, the day to day has been very similar. I may have said this before, and perhaps used it as an excuse for not posting so many blog entries. Life truly goes on, doesn't it? The fresh perspective is always welcome, but there have been many parts of this experience that served only to remind me how much I love living in Canada. And going to school. Hopefully after the long trek is over that will be the next step, but at this point "we shall see" is an understatement.

The difficultly in looking back at this moment is also that I have shifted focus, and for the next few days especially everything is pointing towards the future. Once I arrive in Singapore there will be no more of either, as far as I can help it. This is the adventure I've been waiting for, and I'm ready to wander for a good while.

Goodbye Japan. It's been swell.

(and I'll probably be back...)

Hello! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this
issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
With thanks!
