Uplink. Low mudulation.

So little has been going on this past week. Just going and teaching at Tajima. I actually stayed really late every day this week, due to my "shashin kurabu" (photo club). I'm trying to teach these kids how to use photo paper, make box cameras, etc. The ony kids that come are a couple of mute 7th grade guys. There's one 8th grader though, moriyama, and you can totally tell he's way smarter, so we'll see what he comes up with.

Most of the other english teachers have left, and gone back to america or to some other wacky country. So it's just me chillin' (rather literally) up in saitama. This week is pretty sparse, with only 2 days of actual school, and then I've got off until january.

No new or crazy adventures recently. A lot of cold wandering around the kanto plain on my motorcycle. Which, really, is pretty good. The plan the whole time was to go to Japan, get a motorcycle, and ride around and stuff. And that's what's happening.

Also, there's the shintoshin. It's basically my favorite place in japan. It's an amazing combination of nothing and everything... I often walk around there, thinking that I'm walking through one of those artists concepts that you see on the outside of buildings under crontruction -- clean lines, two point perspective, sparsely populated with people going about their business, walking in various vectors. Except it's real.

Well as they say here, "Merikuri".
