... and about 3/4 of a mile up the side of a mountain. I of course marveled first at the interesting looking long boats being rowed and eventually poled along the river with long bamboo sticks. The boats looked a whole lot like the boats on our curtain back in Texas. As it turns out, our curtain was inspired by the famous wood block print "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" originally created by Katsushika Hokusai between 1829-1832. I have included a picture of this wood ...

... and 50 feet tall. The forest was huge with paths to walk through. When the wind blew the bamboo swayed so gently and wide and the sound of the wind in the leaves was peaceful and sweet, it was mesmerizing.

Only 15 Stones have ...

The service tonight was top notch, with the waitresses almost having a sixth sense, knowing exactly when we would finish up a course and were prepared for the next.

The Japanese may very well be the most polite people in the World and take the whole notion of service to a whole new level - from the moment we ...

... sometimes uphill, my instinct is to get out and help him pull the thing up. I always feel the need to give a hand when work is going on (wish I didn't). It feels a little strange, having a person pull me around like this. I know I rode in a cyclo while in Vietnam, but that was a person giving me a ride powered by a bicycle. Tuk Tuks are motor driven, as well as motodops. This is a person just pulling me along with his own legs. I know most people would enjoy feeling a ...
