this evening i went to a notorious foreigner bar in my town. i have been there before, but tonights visit sparked many thoughts. i looked around the room, saw and heard a group of chinese guys, some kind of eastern european guys, some americans, and various other westerners. i cant help but question why you would travel thousands of miles to NOT be sitting at a japanese bar? ?
