Kyoto, Japan. Jan 2011
About this blog
I was en-route to Denver and stopped over at Japan. I spent a day at Shinjuku before I was joined by my friend, Mitsuko to go Kyoto together. Although the weather was pretty cold, we had a wonderful time in Kyoto, enjoying all the great sights and macha-related desserts. The macha biscuits that we bought at the Kyoto station were simply delicious. :)
During this trip, I left my backpack (with a lot of valuable stuff inside) on the train. A kind soul brought it in to a station's lost and found. The station master actually called my embassy about it! I would also remember the kind station masters who helped to trace the train schedule and went through each train compartment to find my forgotten backpack. I am grateful to these people for their truthful spirit and kindness.
