A small slice of Japan

Working on the book much easier now the jet lag has almost gone. To the gym at lunchtime, the place cluttered with new year resolutioners, and I had a decent but not yet maximum workout. Lorraine working at home, and I made miso soup featuring noodles and slices of lotus root for lunch, which we had bought frozen the other day. I find myself thinking about Japan more this time than I did the last.

Find myself visiting the Japan Today site for Japanese news. Broadly I think the first time I visited I noticed the similarities, and this time I was slightly more aware of the differences. Lorraine also thinking about the trip lots, and both really pleased that we went.
