Trip to Japan

Just got back from my first trip to Japan. I thought you guys would get a kick out of this. I snapped this in Kobe while we were walking off the Kobe beef and beer.

Hey Paco. No, I didn't watch any Go. I didn't know the Go Club moved to Saturdays. That's a good time to have it. Can have your Go and morning coffee at the same time. I don't have time for Go though. I barely have time for my chess nowadays with all my hobbies. But it's good to see you are keeping busy with both clubs.

How was your trip? Did you take lots of pictures?

Sancho,

Trip was a lot of fun. I was depressed on the day we had to come back. The food was terrific and everything was really clean. I've never seen such excellent service in my life.

Didn't take as many pictures as I should have. I got so wrapped up in the moments that I kept forgetting to whip out the camera.

I'll definitely go again someday.

Hey Nezha,

I thought you had turned down the job offer from Japan? Did you have a change of heart?
