Sydney here I come!

For those of you not in the know, I am transferring to my company's Sydney office. Things are starting to move along quite quickly now and it looks like I will be in Sydney in less than two weeks. I still need to get the movers all sorted out and book a flight but barring any problems I will be there by the last week of February! I also need to sell most of my stuff so if anyone wants something from my apartment let me know!

Snow!


Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning, looked out my window, and saw snow! Sure, I know, nothing special if Iwere in Canada but snow in Tokyo is a rare thing. There fell a whole 3 centimeters today.


Enough snow that someone made this snowman (snow bunny?) in front of my apartment. Just to illustrate how a rare a thing this is here ... I took a taxi and it had chains on the tires!
