Now that I've got a phone that takes high quality pictures I've decided to start a "Life in Japan" thread just to give you guys a sort of idea of how life is in Japan. Don't expect anything exciting though :-D I'll probably post once a week with images I've taken through out it.
This week I'll start off with Wednesday 20th April 2005. I was woken up at 6:20am by a bloody earthquake (measured 4.5 on the scale) which is very odd for this part of Japan. Anyway, off to work I went. When I got to Shimonoseki Station at 7:30am this was the site I was met with.
What the hell was going on I though. It soon cameto my attention that the earthquake had damaged the tunnel under the sea which connects Honshu to Kyushu. I ended up waiting for 3 hours plus had some git from KBC (TV Station) try to interview me. I ended up being called by work who told me to take the day off with pay since it wasn't my fault :)
So next I went to Deo Deo to order a headphone adaptor for my phone so that I could use my decent headphones for listening to the MP4s. While there I spotted this typical effort of EngRish with all the PSPs. There was also one written in Korean.
They must of heard about me flogging them all to you guys :-D
I ended up walking about 1 mile until I got a bus since they were packed thanks to the trains being down. It was quite hot and as you can guess wearing a suit doesn't help. So I decided to buy a can of CocaCola C2 (Sort of a diet version I guess but actually very tasty).
And I bet you guys thought CocaCola only made Coke :)
So there you have it. My Wednesday of last week. More coming in the following week.
