Sorry for the irregular postings lately. (as if you were all anxiously awaiting each and every post...) I also apologize for not checking out everyone else's-China makes it a bit more difficult than I thought... But don't worry, you should see a return to regular ramblings and bad pictures-I have a few days to rest and recuperate on a mountain (Thomas Mann eat your heart out) before I head to Tokyo. Oh and I also apologize if my blog makes your browser crash. I'm not so sure why, but methinks that your browsers just may have good taste.
