I'm in Tokyo, and it's about 9:30 on Saturday morning. Work was serene and long-winded, as usual, and this time I felt it was worth me being there, which is good. Last night I was useless and fell asleep as soon as I got into the hotel.

Now I need to go out and do something useful, even though it's raining. I wonder what one does in Tokyo at 10AM on a Saturday... Maybe go to a large food market.

Back in Edinburgh Sunday night.

So, I did go out and have a very out-of-character day of shopping and visiting museums. Actually I've been known to visit museums, but I did buy a silly number of items, some of the items silly themselves.
