In 17 minutes I have to leave for a banquet in a hotel down the street. It’s the celebration of the completion of the Nagaoka Koi Show 2016. As usual I’m running late. There is just not enough time to crop pictures, adjust wardrobe and say hi to loved ones. In a couple days I’ll be boarding a plane in Tokyo to go home and I feel like this blog has been lacking some serious content. In short, I’ve been busy. I’ll leave you with this email I sent to my mother when she was wondering why I haven’t updated anything yet.

Hi mom!!
Right now I’m in the security office at a koi show with Shawn. His back is giving him problems so this place is warm and he can lay down. It’s 8:46 am and I’m sleepy haha
This trip is different in the sense that I’m here as shawns back. Meaning I have catch fish and help him in the green houses. These were usually the times I would wander and snap pictures. Not to say that I’m not taking photos every chance I get its just a little more koi based. The blog comes second.
It’s beautiful right now tho, the air is crisp and the coffee is hot 🙂 I’m dreading going back to 90 degree weather!

I will need you to pick us up from the air port, the details I’ll get to you a little later. But it will be Monday around 11am.

I love and miss you. Give my love to Samantha and the family
