About a year or so after I got here, I got sick. Really really sick. So sick that I almost left Japan. I had no idea what was wrong with me....

I thought I would share with your some interesting pictures.
1) That is a view from my front door of the mountain I live near. Ok....maybe it isn't interesting but I sure think it is beautiful!
2) I was at the supermarket recently and saw this one....hmmm.....diet salad?! I always assumed salad was pretty low calorie but I guess some people need that pointed out to them in a foreign language! I swear if you add English to something here it immediately becomes cool!
3) Japanese always complain that American food is huge....but this 1800 yen (about $18) sundae blows that idea out of the water. Of course this is meant to be shared but this thing is really really big. Every time my honey and I go by this restaurant he practically drools when he sees it!
4 and 5-ok I have blogged before about crazy Japanese TV and I couldn't believe this when I saw it so I tried to take pics to show you. The first one is the same guy in the 2nd picture. They set it up like it is some important contest (hence is face up close looking serious). Basically this guy has to strip down to his "pantsu" (underwear), stand in front of the big yellow sign and try to stay standing as some guys blast him with water from a fire hose! This was (sadly) entertaining to my honey.
Did anyone here about the fact that Gocco's parent company has decided to stop making goccos as of June 30? This was announced in Japan the other day. I'm sure many people will be upset!!
