In Nagoya now. Ive seen approximately 270 castles, temples and gardens, climbed two mountains,handfed monkeys, hung out with elderly japanese restaurant owners, and last night I also ate whale meat. Ryan and I went to a local pub to try some real old fashioned sushi and ran into this really happy bunch of people. One news paper editor, a "nozomi train pilot" as he called himself (hes a fucking subway driver) and the previously mentioned restaurant owner. They bought us sake, japanese vodka, japanese beer and of course some awesome Nagoya specialties food wise. We talked about whale hunting, books, swedish meatballs, american women, mountain climbing and nepalese children while getting drunk and smoking menthol cigarettes. After a while we went over to the restaurant owners place where he served us home made booze that tasted kind of like kaluha, and talked some more. He asked me to find him a swedish woman cause the japanese were all too skinny. Anyone interested in a 61 year old mountain climber with an awesome beard, let me know and Ill give you his number.

Best night ever.
