We - as in Tristan's parents, Tristan himself, Mogens and I - went to Japan. Great experience! I simply loved the country and everything in it, and I felt like staying there for months. The people we met, mainly Tristan's uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. were all so very friendly, and more than once I felt embarrassed that I couldn't repay their hospitality.
The first couple of days were spent in a log cabin that Tristan's granddad had built some ten years ago. I chased Tristan down and took a picture of him - actually, I took several, but since he kept running they all came out blurry :)
