Well, it’s been a long while since my last update, but I’ll keep this one brief.
My mom and her friend Debbi just visited me in Japan, and they left me with a ton of photos to sort through. After some deliberation and a whole lot of deleting, geotagging and labeling, I uploaded them all to Flickr as five separate albums of around 100 pictures apiece. Everything I could recognize has a spot on the world map, and most of the important Japanese you see on signs and such is translated.
Here’s the home page for those five albums: [http://www.flickr.com/photos/bryanmckelvey/collections/72157627252938824/]
