Culture Shock

Each year, I find different things strange when I return to the US for Christmas. This year, it's showers.

If you think about it, it's much neater to shower and bathe in different spots. In Japan, you usually stand on the floor outside the tub to shower.

Hmmm.

Happy Birthday to my little sister today!

This morning, I ventured out for a run - my first since I got sick. It was a little chilly, but much easier than running through mounds of snow. Here's a brief look at what I saw.

Help! What is this weird blog?

If you've stopped by the blog at all this morning, you've probably seen a few changes. At one point, the blog was a ton of tiny pictures that spun when you hovered over them.

I'll settle on something soon! But it's kind of fun to have a big computer where I can actually make changes easily. Unfortunately, someone keeps moving my @ key and my '. OK, those keys are just different on my Japanese keyboard.

Not too much to report on today, other than the crazy changes going on. I bought a new dress yesterday. But I don't have a picture of it (yet...). So I will leave you with this random ANA breakfast photo from my Tokyo-Chicago flight. The breakfast was surprisingly tasty. Maybe that's just a sign that I should be cooking more.

Hope your resolutions are going strong!
