    Avec un peu de retard je vous présente le Japon. Population: plus de 127 millions d'habitants. Capitale: Tokyo: c'est. La métropole la plus densément peuplée au monde, 13 millions 220,000 habitants pour sa superficie.

    ... well with the Zen thought - "I only learn to be contented". "content" seems to be the current word for me... the whole purpose of this trip/adventure was to rebalance myself. i feel that i have already advanced on that journey. not working and lack of everyday stress clearly helps, but i'm certainly feeling more balanced and happy and content. good! ...
