    No Fujiama this time. Tooo cold! Besides of the 6 days gone I spend 30 hours travelling, 4 days in the office. But I do luck out and have one day off due to a national holiday. Will spend in museums and shopping....this trip.

    Dear Dianne,
    Have a great trip in the land of the rising sun. Visiting an orchid nursery perhaps? I really really like your Onc. Kahili 'Big'. Thanks for taking the time from preparing for your trip and posting the pictures.
    Cheers. Hoa.
