    Today was day number 2 with the snow monkeys. We will have an opportunity for a half day tomorrow, but we are going to stick around town and explore a bit. Our hotel is about 50 feet from a Buddhist temple. The monkeys were feisty today. You will find many fight and chase scenes. They are hilarious to watch. There is a TON of snow, as you can …

    Today we visited the snow monkey park in Nagano prefecture (site of a previous winter Olympic Games.

Even Rod agreed to try it, which is pretty amazing as he usually will not step out of his comfort zone. Then off to dinner with Kerry and Gloria. They have travelled extensively and are really interesting and good company. So a few beers and glasses of sake before hitting bed for a good nights sleep. Damned Sake....headache ...

    This morning started off rather dreary with some drizzle and dampness on the roads. Plus, it was on the cold side, about 12 degrees with a forecast to reach 19 degrees as a daytime high. I had originally planned to do a mountain climb, about 87 km with 2,000 metres of elevation gain. However, the mountain tops looked socked in with low cloud cover. Instead, I decided to ride to a place for lunch that I had discovered on the internet while checking ...
