... here in Japan and a children's sticker book. I follow my guide book and prepared for my host family a nice omigae (gift) ahead of time. It is a huge Japanese tradition to give gifts form friends to colleagues to neighbors to families. It's hard for me to figure out what Japanese host family would like as a gift. As it turns out, Trader joes shopping bags, of all things, are their favorite, I would have NEVER guessed. I found out all this info via the Internet. Today is a rainy ...
Today was a day to take in some of busier areas of Tokyo. I was fueled up and out the door by 9. The first stop was off to Odaiba, in search of Gundam.

We 'nomikai' (=drinking party) every so often, and mucked around with fireworks the other night to honour the warm summer weather. Hanging sparkles out of your mouth and posing for the camera is the done thing, haha.
... prove myself. It seems approval-seeking still continues to dwell within me. I guess it's not so surprising. I had been living that way for most of my life, it's not going to go away so easily. But, I feel like it's getting better. After this incident, I feel like I can let go of that old pattern of thought and make better use of my time here.
My Sifu in Toronto once told me "stop trying to be cool, it's okay to just be ...
