eyes black and white

Japan

Arrived in Japan today. Greeted with cherry blossom trees losing their petals at the wind. Nice. People are very friendly and polite. Streets are clean. Feels like more civilized a country than France, Great Britain, Luxembourg, and maybe even Switzerland. I now have three weeks to prove that white men in Japan can aspire to become something else than mindless armored racketeers proud of rampaging and murdering.
