So after more than two years in Asia, and over a year of traveling, I'm back in Canada. It's weird.
Of course, I'm not really done traveling as I'm in a city I've never been to before (Vancouver) and don't have a place to live yet (I'm staying with a friend), but the end seems near.

Here are some photos I took while I was in Korea.

Weird statues, Jeju Island, Loveland (possibly not safe for work)

Random Korean stuff, mask dances, African art, monsters!

So the robot musuem in Nagoya (the entire reason I went there) is closed forever.
As of last monday.
argh.

so now I:m in kyoto. I seriously don:t care about temples anymore. and my guide book is laughable. It says that whne you imagine japan you imagine temples and mountains and shit. No I don:t! I imagine robots and crazy shit happening. blah

makkew?

Oh, also a new, and entirely inpenetrable, version of my name. Makkew? Mak-que? something like that. Multiple Nipponese people were saying that today.
Like I know th is hard to say (hell, loads of english speaking people can:t say it that well), but I guess I got used to Matchu which I heard in korea and other parts of asia.
eh.

hitch hiking japan

Today I hitched from Tokyo to Nagoya. The long way. It took a while, but I got there eventually.
Five rides total.
Two from elderly parents and they:re grown up children. Both bought me meals.
One from a bus full of penshioners returning from a weekend in the mountains. They gave me alcohol.
One from a local bus driver who brought me like two stops down the road to where I was supposed to catch a local bus, but then!
Three cute Japanese girls who brought me into the centre of the city. Hurray! I wish I:d ridden with them the whole way...

Tonight I sleep in a capsule hotel. I:m brutal tired.

robot!
