« Previous: Comic: Whole Lotta School Still Next: the cover most likely to »

to do: japan

I've never been to Tokyo. Maybe because Rick Steves hasn't covered it. I have such travel-lust for that place, though. All those lights and non-stop activity and huge swells of people - I must be there! It's been edging up my travel to-do list, and it's right up there on my "Places I have to visit before Nature wipes them out" list (created after never making the time to visit pre-Katrina New Orleans).

But meanwhile, until I cough up the cash and time, I travel vicariously through other people's Japan experiences.

It seems to me that one could make a very good living in Japan by offering their services as an English-translation proofreader.
