Hi folks, just a quick update from the lobby of the hotel while my sis is showering. Osaka is full of insanely attractive people – it is mind blowing. They must spend hours everyday on hair and makeup etc – and thats just the guys! I would think they were gay except they spend all their time cruising chicks.
The people are also very friendly. We had a couple of young guys run over and start chatting to us yesterday while we were taking photos. It:s weird but, because I:ve travelled so much in SE Asia, I automatically assume that locals are going to try to con money out of you or sell you shit then make a huge scene if you don:t buy it — it:s to think that people are just being all friendly.
Also got chatted up on Tuesday night – went to a ramen place and some guys remembered us from the plane (if i understood Japanese I think I:d have heard them say crazy, swearing girl cos I don:t fly well esp when the plane is delayed for hours!).
Last night went to a v tiny neighbourhood bar. Haven:t been game to try Pichinco yet.
Japan is fun but my Japanese talking is an epic fail so far – everyone wants to talk \english!
BTW the keyboard is in squiggly so that:s why my punctuation is crap. Bye, I:ve got a date with a whale shark to keep. Much more detail and photos to come.
