5 Years and Counting…

Today, I got a notice from WordPress wising me Happy Anniversary! Honestly, I’ve never kept track of when I started blogging here, so thanks, WordPress, for reminding me.  Before WordPress I kept a blog at Blogger.com and the now defunct (??) Friendster.

Strange…

Just a short post on this and that… I have an upcoming trip to Japan, and I find it so strange that none of the popular bookstores I’ve been to around my city sells Japan guide books. I can’t find any Japan tour books by Lonely Planet, Fodor’s, Frommer’s or any of the popular (or…
