First off,merry Christmas!
Second off, I guess I kinda sorta dropped the ball a bit didn’t I? To be fair, I didn’t really have internet access for a good couple of weeks there but I guess I haven’t really been up to the task of the whole writing down your thoughts thing. Setting up life in a new country is hard but now comes a new year and I promise to write with at least some sort of regularity. Unless I forget. All the best for the new year.
Third and finally, this Shinkansen is very crowded. I guess that’s what I get for travelling on New Year’s Eve.
