On June 18th, all I did was travel. Straight from the hotel to Auckland airport, then a 12h flight to Singapore, a 4h layover, and a 7h overnight flight to Tokyo.
I did take ONE snapshot today, but it was just to remember the website of a NZ photo contest that I might enter. Singapore airport offered some photo opportunities (there is a free butterfly house!), but I was just too tired. Instead, I watched the Germany and then US World Cup games.
So, I’m going to give you a sneak preview of what I might see in Japan tomorrow (wink wink, nudge nudge).
June is rainy season in Japan. But the overcast sky means nice, high-contrast reflections in the lakes. Here’s a shot from Shinjuku-Gyoen park.
Here’s a popular Japanese sports drink, I guess aimed at people who like to… drink sweat? Or at those who perspire a lot? Who knows. Thanks to tomorrow’s “Pocari Sweat” model, Nick.
Japan has a lot to offer, and more to see (and eat) than you can imagine. From Grease street dancers to $100 canteloupes, we’re going to see it all! I have a feeling this is going to be a wild ride…
