12 am and Wiiiide Awake

Such is jet lag.

Son and I arrived in Japan with few glitches.  Its hot &sticky here in Osaka, but then its also June and this is Japan.

Read on the way via son’s Kindle a new book on the Lucie Blackman incident, called People Who Eat DarknessAn ex-Voxer in her Vox blog wrote a bit from her perspective about the case.

Needless to say reading the entire book did not put me in the best frame of mind to land in Japan.  Sure the story is about a dark, peripheral underside of Japan, but the greater message is why is a blind eye turned toward a system which exploits both women and the clientele they serve?

One of the first things I have noticed is that unlike when I last was here some 7 years ago, most women now do not dye their hair. Also have not seen anyone who is even moderately obese, let alone morbidly obese.

Our first full day?  Need to resolve a camera issue: the camera keeps displaying an error message that the memory chip we bought in the U.S. is locked, when it is not. Also need to see about renting a cell phone and move on to our lodgings in Kyoto.
