China Town

Day 2

semi-overcast

So today we slept in a bit and then I took a traditional Japanese bath. That means I sat on a little stool and dumped buckets of water over myself. Then I took a bath AFTER I had completely cleaned myself.

Then, we were off to China town! Now I have to warn you, some of these pictures are pretty explicit... apparently China has a thing for... erotica... but you'll see

Oh god... where to start on the wood jokes...

Also, $800 per pound? What? That must be some damn good tea! (Or a moderately priced hooker... :p )

Actually, I didn't much like the tea. The one very noticeable thing about the $800 version versus a dramatically cheaper tea of the same variety, was that the $800 tea was very smooth. It felt like velvet going down. But the flavor... meh.
