So we’re heading to Japan for a bit on Monday.
Blogging will obviously be low for a few weeks (OK, it’s already been low, I’m hoping my batteries will be recharged when I’m back and it will get better).
We’ll be visiting TG’s family in Tokyo, Hiroshima (go Carps!! – we’ll catch a game while there), Miyashima (and the tram), Okayama and the Musashi museum, Kyoto, the Five Fuji lakes, and back to Tokyo with a possible side trip up to Takayama.
I’m working on a piece on Afghanistan – it’s depressing and so hard to do – tied to the excellent film Restrepo, the McCrystal flap, the Yon/milblogs flap, and On Strategy – to me somehow they all are hanging together in one pattern…if only I can get it down in words.
Meanwhile, as always, be nice to each other and don’t blow anything up while I’m gone.
