Home soon - time gone quite fast
Have only got 2 more days in Orlando before returning home to Japan.

Well, that was a fun week but it's nice to be home through got to go into work tomorrow. Might have changed teams while I was away . It's interesting comparing LA with Tokyo -Toyko has more people and may be bigger, but LA is more spread out. You can walk a lot further in LA without seeing anything than you can in Tokyo. LA does have a metro but it does not cover much of the city, so assuming you have no car, you switch to metro busses. Part of the problem is how spread out LA is - I don't think ......
