- When the Rough Guide calls something "quiet", what they really mean is "utterly deserted, and probably for a good reason."
- Eel tastes really, really good. I mean, seriously good. I think I have a new favorite food.
- On a related note, Japan has terrific food, but it's probably not a great place to travel if you're a vegetarian.
- Japanese Olympic coverage is every bit as jingoistic as American. But there are fewer human interest stories, which is probably good, since I can't understand what anyone is saying anyway.
As you can tell, I am learning many important things while on my summer vacation. Will post more when I have more time.
