Well, decided that Japan, lovely that it is, was far too expensive for us so we made haste to leave the country. We still, however, had to get to the bottom of the country. More money on trains and buses bler. The bus was interesting though as it had a tv in the back of the chair in front. Managed to fill the time getting to Osaka with movies and some games including sonic and Golden eye.

We stopped off in Nagoya just before the bus ride and tried to find a hostel down some streets. Eventually, asked a lady outside a small restaurant and before we new it we had a small group of customers and staff trying to direct us to the hostel. lots of broken English and a comment from a customer saying I was beautiful. Would be flattered by the compliment but have a feeling he would say that to any westerner (:

Note – English money cards do not work in machines on a Sunday

Noticed the homeless people were very civilised. They had all surrounded their beds with cardboard and had sections that were very tidy.

Bryn once told me he hung out with some people and surrounded himself with cardboard boxes. When he had finished his “den” the people had left.

In Osaka to pass the time there were so many amusement machines that they managed to steal money from our wallets. They were fun though and had to have a go on the guitar hero. Was put to shame by the Japanese that clearly go to these arcades to pass the time, often.

Straight off to Hiroshima and it was a sad time. Read some stories of children in the bombing. Quite emotional really.

We managed to get down to the ferry to Busan in South Korea in time to catch it going over night. On the way a girl of around Thirteen kept waving at us while her friend tried to stop her staring. Interesting.

Over night to Busan and had to use the communal bath to wash as I couldn’t hack being unclean any longer. Was a little strange being in a room full of naked old women and being the ethnic minority. Felt very English and coy at that point. Clean though.

Well, finally in South Korea and staying with an American girl called Rachel and we should be going out for some drinks tonight. Hurray.

    Hey! Think I’ve caught up at last! I think I’ve seen all the videos and most of the photos; enjoying scrolling through all this even though I don’t always know what I’m doing and, inevitably, swear a lot when I press the wrong button, forget what I was looking at etc.
    Also keep forgetting to ask when to expect a massive cheque in the post from the fortune that you and George are accruing just ‘cos people pay you for being bonkers but friendly with it…………! What is the drink of choice in South Korea? hope you are enjoying it.
