At the Hit-the-Wall Café...

... you can write whatever you want... within reason.I couldn't get a sunrise picture today, because it rained, and it rained all day, so it's a good day to use the Althouse Portal to Amazon.

The anticipated joy of a Tokyo train journey?

Tokyo’s train network is truly wonderful, with the option to easily travel all over the capital the gift that really does keep on giving.
