Day 13 - Wed 23 Apr 2003
Finally managed to
send off the Hong Kong and Seattle Lonely Planet's today for $3.80 each - bargain, and I
don't have to drag them around the rest of the planet with me! Then headed into Tokyo and
had a good look around Sinjuku and tried some "Pocari Sweat" (it's a sort of
energy drink - that's actually very nice!).
Headed back, after getting my Japanese rail
pass, and booking my sleepers to/from Nagasaki/Kagoshima. Checked my e-mails and found that
Lisa is going to try to meet up with me in Auckland. Also my company is 'advising'
employees from SARS zones to say at home, so I either work from home, or take extra paid
leave. So by the sounds of it, my diversion to New Zealand is the better bet.
