Back in Japan!

Well, I am back home now. That was a very short trip! The flight back was OK - it went fairly quick and that is always good.

I did a bit of surfing on Friday and Saturday, so that was nice. I rented a board but skipped the wet suit as I figured the water would probably be warm enough. Most of the surfers did have wet suits, but there were some that didn't, so it seemed OK, but I was wrong: it was REALLY COLD...61 degrees (16-17 degrees celsius). On Saturday, the guy getting into the water next to me was wearing a 5mm suit with a hood/cap thing. Just watching him put it on made me shiver and I hadn't even entered the water yet. Renting the wet suit might be a good idea next time around.

Saturday was the Fourth of July and I cannot remember the last time I was in America for that holiday. We watched everyone on the beach, had a small BBQ and watched the lame fireworks.

Here is IB on the Fourth...
