1/7/10, while in Tokyo
I've found that one of my favorite parts of traveling is sitting around on public transportation. The mundane task of waiting amidst a whirlwind trip of exploring and meandering is quite relaxing. I actually find myself a bit disappointed when I reach my destination, regardless of how incredible the location may be. For instance, when the bus arrived at Arashiyama, where I'd wanted to go for years and years, my excitement came with a twinge of regret at having to leave the bus. Strange, considering how intent I am on doing ridiculous things while abroad, that I would find such happiness in going around in circles.
