Stranded in the snow

... dinner together. This is traditional on the last evening of an Explore trip. As I was writing it the TV had an extended news programme about all the problems caused by the snow which is affecting the northern half of Japan. Well, most of us met in the hotel reception at 6:00 but there was then a division of ways and no group dinner. Some went back out into the snow to the temple again, planning to go to an. Italian restaurant. Two had already been out and bought sandwiches to eat ...

All we're actually getting is a few flakes of snow yesterday, and enough snow here and there to make the odd pile of ice and slush. ...

... worth it.

We made it out of Seria alive, and after some other rather pointless wanderings throughout the shopping mall, we found ourselves at the starbucks downstairs for a warming coffee (or hot chocolate for the girls) just as it started to snow.
Again, and I've lost count of the number of times on this trip, we were the only idiots sitting outside, while everyone else sat inside looking out at the tourists who had obviously lost their minds. On the ...
