We've been taking it pretty easy this week seeing the best parts of Japan and enjoying not having much to worry about. Yesterday was Osaka again and today we looked around Kyoto for the day. Kyoto was pretty incredible and Japan as Japan was. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next eleven days as we continue to unwind and unwind before we have to wind back up in the UK. We'll see what happens.

The yen got very strong against the pound in the last two weeks bringing our loss from exchanging money at the wrong time up to about $1,500. There's only one thing to do at times like this — buy more. It sort of averages out then.

Sarah Palin is playing out like I thought. I give her a fifty-fifty chance of making it to the election. I love that they have to give her a week to get training for the media coverage. This is not the time for that,especially when you're trailing in the polls and your opponents have both been under the gun for the last two years. I see Obama getting closer to ten points by election day.
