It's HOT in Japan
I took this video from our hotel this morning. Keep in mind this was about 8:30AM, and half the kids here are already fanning themselves!
I am burned to a crisp right now. Yesterday was 95 degrees and the humidity... the humidity in Japan is like being in the tropics. NO ONE in New York can understand this feeling unless they've been out of the region - there just is no equivalent in the northeast, I don't care what the thermometer says even on the hottest day of the year. The soup you walk through in Tokyo makes it feel like it's about 140 when it's this hot out. I was drenched with sweat when we made it back to our hotel - my pants were literally soaking wet. I had to pay $15 to have the hotel wash them. And today wasn't much better. I'm going through at least two changes of clothes per day.
It's supposed to be like this until we leave. Ugh.
I've been taking lots of pictures - I actually do have some more things to post soon.
