Hey Deca!


We arrived in Toyohashi by Shinkansen as sun was setting.  Toyohashi seems a pretty industrial town - it doesn't get much write up in the tourist guides, but were visiting Deca so it was an obligatory stop.  Deca was teaching English so he knew the town a little.  He took us out to the local Pizza joint for dinner.

After dinner we went Back to Deca's pad.  Of course it's small, but it slept the 4 of us without too much trouble.  There a little differences between Japanese apartments and western apartments.  The elevator fit 3 people - no more.  Garbage is separated and taken out on different days.  The bathrooms are smaller than most closets.  Laundry generally doesn't include a dryer.

The next morning, I went out with Deca to get some good shots for his family back home.  Deca is great at acting for the camera so we had a little fun.  Deca had class to teach that morning so we didn't have long.

I went back to the apartment and a few minuets later, Deca came back!  It turns out his manager's wife had just had a baby and he had the day off.  We walked around Toyohashi for a while (checked e-mail) and then got on the trail for Tokyo.
