OK...I am suitably recovered from jet lag and all that, although not enough to take any pictures to post on the blog. So, you will have to make do with text for awhile.

Not that I have much to write today.

It is cool and raining here, which is a surprise since rainy season ended a week ago.

Yesterday, I awkwardly fell on top of my board while getting off a wave and bruised a rib (at least I think I did...one of those things that does not seem serious enough to warrant a doctor visit, but painful enough that I wonder if I should). On top of that, later in the day, I stepped on a sea urchin. I was wearing booties, but the little bastard was sufficiently annoyed to shoot one of its spines through the bottom of the shoe. None of that is particularly serious, but it did make me wonder why I got out of bed.

Oh, I am working at the surf shop now. It might be better to say I am helping out as I am not receiving a salary, but I do get free lunch, free beer and surf wax. And I am learning how to run a shop, which could come in handy later.

That is it for now. I promise to post some pictures soon, so there is something nice to look at.

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...

Almost baseball

We went to a baseball game yesterday. I say almost because it was a Padres game and they have not been the easiest team to support recently. Yesterday was no exception. This is the fourth time I have been to Petco Park and they have lost everytime. Having said that, it was fantastic. It was a day game and we had really good (half-price) seats.

I just loved being there.

Well, three more days and I am back in Japan...wow, time flies.
