Yesterday I took the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto and connected on a local train to Takatsuki, where I'll be staying with Luke. I got in sometime in the early afternoon and met up with Luke. We walked around and headed toward Lukes work, where he and I parted ways. Takatsuki is pretty small, but it's cool so far, but it has been super cold here, yesterday I got lost on the walk to Luke's house and walked around for over an hour trying to find my way. I finally made it back here around 8pm and when I got in I couldn't feel my hands or my feet. It felt so good to get indoors; It makes me jealous of everyone back home in Southern California, who've been enjoying the high-seventy/low-eighty glory!! This will be a short post for me, as I am getting ready to leave to hop on a train to Osaka and check it out for the day.
