Wet, wet, wet

It is raining the entire time. Not that it is bothering me, really, but there is more to come! The entire country is buzzing as it supposedly is a really bad one and there are winds of 150 km/hr. After 2 corporate calls, I ventured out on the subway. It is an experience. There are offcicial "pushers" to get everyone on the train. Kind of funny as the Japanese are a super polite nation. (honestly, we should send people here to get a crash course in how to be polite!).
There was a store I read about called Okadaya. It is the vertical version of fabricworld in Portland. Eight stories of fabric, buttons and all in between. I didn't buy a thing...... It is so hard to choose and so I walked out, being totally overwhelmed. Eye candy though.
Tomorrow we go to Bio Japan 2009, a large convention of biotechnology, pharmaceutical and research organizations interested in partnering. Sort of like speed dating :)
It is in Yokohama, on the water. As long as we don't get a tsunami, we should be ok. Haha.

Sometimes just looking is enough!
