• Getting chased by a herd of monkeys is not great
  • Fresh cashew fruits are awesome
  • Going from the longest day of the year in Seattle to the shortest in São Paulo was strange
  • The sun being north was really weird


  • Tokyo is nice
  • I happened to be there for the start of the Reiwa era
  • Public smoking is a thing
  • Shinkansen are cool

It’s been a fun year.
