Howdy again

    On the ground in Japan, we passed through customs, a swine-flu check point, and an immigration check point, we met with Mrs. Yamanka and took a bus to the hotel.  The hotel is quite lavish, though quite western.  It seems like a good cultural acclimatization point.
    The toilets, however, can only be described as decidedly non-Western.  Google image "japanese toilets" and you might understand the confusion.
    Also, I wanted to say that I have been unable to post pictures from the flight and hotel because I have been shooting in "raw" instead of "jpeg," which normally wouldn't be a problem, but since I don't have a photoeditor at my disposal, the site won't read the pictures directly off my camera.  No fear!  I have changed my camera to .jpeg and will begin adding pictures to these entries as soon as possible.
