Tour of Japan

I second that request, Terry!

Terry, just wondering if you have had any feedback from your fellow volunteer at the Portland Japanese Garden on his tour of Kyoto with JOJG?

Hello Ward,
I have not seen him as yet,  he may not be back in Oregon yet.  I will talk to him as soon as he returns

Well, 6 months passes very quickly.  Annie and I leave for Kyoto and the Sukiya Living Walking Tour tomorrow morning.  It has been sort of surreal leading up to this point.  I have been a fan of Japanese gardens and bonsai for many years so we will wake up Monday morning in the heart of it all.  I would love to say that I will keep you updated on our progress but we have decided to go low tech on this tour and leave the phones behind.  We want to immerse ourselves in the tour and the city and not have to worry about answering emails from relatives all evening when we get  back to the hotel.  Along with this loss comes our inability to make any posts here.  I will have a full report when we get back.  Not a wonderful day by day blog like Mary (Meiho) but I do promise a big report.  I will be taking lots of pictures and hope to post them in a gallery when we get back.  I am taking my iPad and have loaded Memoirs of a Geisha, Seven Samurai, Yojimbo and Sanjuro so the 9 hour flight should pass very quickly.  If our iPad can hook up to the internet there I may send greetings and let you know how it is going.
Until we return,

Bruce S.:
Excellent, Ward!

I only foresee only two problems with this journey . . . you won't want to come home, and you'll want to go back often!
