I'm not sure whether the wires will ever be the same again.

Back home in warmer climes

Catching up on sleep.
Watching Torah Bright win gold in Vancouver
Didn't get much knitting done in Japan - about half a sock.
Despite being able to take my knitting on the plane, I was too catatonic to do any in-flight. But it was nice to know that I could have.
Only landed on my bum three times on the icy streets.
Snow shoeing is really hard work, but the views were so worth it.
I think I left a t-shirt and pair of undies in Nikko.
The Japanese drive on the same side of the road as us, but on roundabouts, they give way to the left, so you can enter a roundabout, but then have to give way to other traffic on the left entering the roundabout.
Lots of photos here.

Snow... lots of snow

In Sapporo it snows a lot. I'm not taking many photos although I am getting better at wrangling my little camera with gloves still on. The big camera is not coming out much.
