The temperatures in Tokyo at the moment are quite high, along with high humidity. It is always a bit of an inconvenience travelling across such dramatic seasonal differences. I've been meaning to get my haircut for a while and the impending hot weather reminds me to do so. There's a bit of shopping to do as well so I head off around 10am to do so. Picked up a bargain while shopping, a computer error on the part of the shop apparently, advantage me.
Home mid-afternoon and the Sea Eagles have sent a nice little memento: 'We Bleed Maroon'...perfect timing for the third and final state of origin coming up next week, when I'll be away...it will be interesting to see if I can find an ex-pat gathering to watch (not that I usually do that sort of thing, but then, I'm not usually in Tokyo for the third SoO).
This evening, working away on a few notes and drafts for some research and writing I'll be doing next week. Besides the election, there is some interest in how the whaling issue is being reported in the Japanese press. Australia and Japan are presently in court in The Hague. I'm keen to see how that plays out.

I didn't quite get everything I hoped to get at the shops today, I hope I can pick them up in the morning. In the meantime, The Ashes begin...a big one for cricket lovers everywhere.
And look at today: day 216 on the 612 blog...one for the number crunchers.
