Dancin’ Doug Tokyo Journal 2013 – Part 1
My Good People!
I’m heading to the Airport to go to Tokyo for my FAM (Familiarization) Trip. We have it on our EXCITING itinerary for 2014.
May God Grant me safe passage there and back.
Me for You. You for Me.
“Its a Love Thang!”
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
Yesterday 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.
I 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.
World Kitchen Baobab
Ohara-Bldg. 2-4-6 Kichijoji-Minami-Cho, Musashino-Shi, Tokyo, Japan
Open: 6:00pm – 1:00am Fri. & Sat. 6:00pm – 4:00am

Today I will explore this area and tomorrow I start hitting the Hotels, Temples and Tour spots in Tokyo.
One last thing: the cab ride back to my Hotel was $110! Ouch!! As Flash said, “When my car breaks down and I’m out in the rain, then forget it…Huh! TAKE THE TRAIN!”
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.
DAY FIVE IN TOKYO
I just heard about the Blasts in Boston. My heart and prayers go out to all of my American Family in this time of chaos.
