With a little help from Japanese technology, I walked into a photo booth today and emerged a star! It may have digitally enlarged my eyes a little, chiseled my jaw and added some digital makeup, but I look good!
Their ability to transform me into this dashing amazing looking young man is a little scary however. It may be time the US takes its eyes off North Korea and starts paying attention to the real threat.
PS. There were other photo’s too, but they were literally so good I didn’t want to start a panic.
I stumbled on a plane this morning half asleep and flew to another island. When I finally navigated to my new hostel and used the rest room I knew something was up; I definitely wasn’t in a third world country anymore.
Any westerner who travels to Asia will notice something right away; buckets with scoopers, and sometimes when things get really fancy, a sprayer mounted to the wall of the bathroom. Both of these are for washing your backside, a gross and barbaric substitute for toilet paper… until you use them. They’re F’n brilliant and you learn to love and respect them.
Well, I’m never going back! This is what I walked into today.
The throne of thrones. Hello, Tokyo city Japan!
And yes, you have to try all the buttons.
