    This is pretty interesting Donald-san. ^ ^ The trashcan is cute. How’s your head doing btw?

    • Donald Ash

      Thank you Nanami, I always appreciate your feedback. My head is healing nicely 😉 Thanks for asking.

      • Nanami

        I’m glad on both accounts! You’re such a sweetheart. ^ ^

        Side note: I sent off the last of my materials to the Uni. Hopefully I will hear back soon.

          Thanks, Nanami. I’m rooting for you. I hope thinks work out better than you expect them to.

    I experienced one of these ‘businessman hotels’ during my travels. I remember the entire bathroom except for knobs and the toilet lid were one single piece of molded fiberglass, and if you leaned forward while sitting on the toilet you would bang your head into the door. My boss was 6’8″ and had to get on his knees to shave.

      WOW! I’ve heard of the business hotels but haven’t gotten a chance to stay in one…sounds pretty tiny, Kurt. I feel so bad for your boss. Being 6’8″ in Japan? He must’ve felt like Gulliver in the land of all things small. That shaving thing must have been a pretty funny sight, though.

        Best part was when we were walking together everyone would stare at him instead of me! I’m only 5’11” but kind of built like a linebacker so I would stand out as well….not with him around!

        Yeah, the hotel room was so small I had to stack two chairs on top of a small table to make room for the huge bag I carried. And watch out for the minibar…I pulled out a beer just to look at it and ‘surprise!’…a spring loaded latch pops out SO YOU CAN’T PUT IT BACK! That was an unplanned 700 yen to expense.
