Arrived in Hokkaido's capital today and am very much looking forward to spending 9 days on this most 'wild' of Japanese islands… Even found free internet access in the train station, but people are waiting so I'll keep this short. Hardly anyone here speaks English, even more so than down south, but so far this hasn't caused any major problems although it makes conversations a tad difficult. But I've also met some nice foreigners and hope that trend will continue. Else I'll be starved for a real chat soon! 🙂

Randomly: What does it say about my obsession with LiveJournal that I can navigate it even in Japanese? *g*

Missing everyone. Will try to update again soon. Hugs.
