bangkok bound

We've just wrapped up a whirlwind tour of Kyoto, Japan. Due to the aforementioned misadventure we only had two full days here. Day 1 we rented bicycles and toured the temples on the outer reaches of the city. I also had my first face to face encounter with monkeys. I set out to prove that man and monkey could coexist peacefully, but one of them hissed at me.

The next day we did an all-day trek up to Mount Hiei, a mountaintop temple complex and the headquarters of Tendai buddhism.

Now we're off to Bangkok...the flight's boarding as I type.

Big lesson from Japan: Don't play the name-that-food item game. It's impossible!
