First, I want to thank all of you readers and/or commenters out there. I never felt like I was alone in Japan thanks to your continued support and posting. I’m glad you were able to be with me, and I apologize for the low frequency of updates throughout the year. Thanks. I’ll keep posting to this blog, until I get tired of posting, or you all get tired of reading, whichever comes first.

Now, my first thought as I got on the plane was: boy, there sure are a lot of foreigners. Uhh…wait, that’s me too. Hey, I guess we’re all foreigners. Or Americans. Or whatever-ers. Anyway, I found the free wireless cafe in the Dteriot airport, and I’m responding to all your emails as fast as I can. Customs had a LOOOONG line and I was asked a lot of questions about where I was going and why. But I made it through and didn’t have to go to the “room”, but the French guy in front of me did. Seriously. It’s WIERD to be back, that’s for sure. I’ll post more once I reach the sane, relaxed, environment of NYC at Christmas-time.
