DAY THREE IN TOKYO

First of all let me say that I really fit in here since Everybody is short, so I am Average to Tall!! Whoo Hooo. LOL

Doug in Nippon - 3 Baobab in KichijojiYesterday I went to Baobab World Restaurant, an “Afro Latino Caribbean” Spot in Kichijoji, outside of Tokyo, for a LIVE Jazz Show! AMAZING!!! The Show was SOLD OUT STANDING ROOM ONLY!! I was ROCKED by the Band “Novel Klassic” and the Beautiful Ayaka, “The Lady of Soul”, who led on vocals.

Doug in Nippon - 2 at BaobabI spoke to the Percussionist from Senegal about doing a trip there. Eva DaSilva has Family there and its a safe place to go in Africa. The majority of the people in the Atlanta Travel Group: LET’S JUST GO, said they wanted to travel to Africa, so I will look into it.

DAY FOUR IN TOKYO

First of all….JUST CALL ME DOUGGIE-CHAN!!

if we are formal, you can call me DOUGLAS-SON. lol

I crashed again yesterday and just walked around the Hotel. I didn’t realize that Jet Lag was so bad…I slept 20 hours the last two days. Most of it was because I stayed up 48 hours anticipating sleeping on the flight and I didnt.

Today I am going to see the largest Buddhist Temple in the World. Its time to see the Beauty that Tokyo has to offer.
