What do women think about?

A little Tokyo girl thinking
Unlike boys, girls start thinking pretty early - it is an evolutionary trait really. In a battle or a hunt the men needed to act instinctively - thinking could get you killed. Women on the other hand, had to compensate for the stupidity of men, to survive as species. That's why women, from an early age, always calculate, always plot plan for the future and generally tell men what to do.

Homeless in Japan

The homeless in Japan are very polite, quiet, never ask for money and try to stay out of the way. They are completely ignored by the general population and rarely harassed by the police. There are about 5,000 homeless in Tokyo (vs. at least 100,000 in New York City).

I came too early to the airport and had some time to kill. A quick survey revealed that Narita has a nice viewing terrace, overlooking the runway. I wish other airports would follow suit.
