Amazing Race

So apparently I've been living under a rock spending my free time out exploring Japan instead of watching TV.  I had no clue until today that we actually do get SOME current TV shows here, just a day late or so.  I still can't stream and we don't have a DVR/TiVo, so I will probably continue to not watch much TV, but as I'm writing this, I'm watching this weeks Amazing Race (and contrary to what I believed this morning, I do get to watch the season premier of Army Wives tonight).  It's so neat to see them in Japan, at places I've been to.  Their 1st stop, in Kamakura, I've been there.  The archery they learn, they have a festival to celebrate it next weekend and I'm going.   

The way they talk about the driving is completely accurate IMO.  If you get into an accident, they will 100% call the police!  They weren't being "dramatic", that's how things work in this country.

The pit stop for this leg of the race was about 15 minutes from Yokosuka Navy Base for any of you Navy readers out there.

And just in case you were wondering, I'm with Jaci and 100% Team Cowboy!  I love these guys!

PS. Anyone notice anything different up above?  No?  Look higher....see it now?!?!?  There is no longer a dot blogspot at the end of my URL, I finally took the plunge =)

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!

Yay! You're on the bandwagon! :)

And congrats on the blog switch. It updated in my reader perfectly. I've considered doing the same, myself. Not sure, I don't know that I'll have the same URL/blog title forever.

Woo! The cowboys are the best!!

Way to go on the .com! I haven't decided if I want to do that yet... Like JG said, I don't know if I'll have the same URL forever. Things change. =P But it looks like you did it right because you're still in my google reader! =)

I just watched last nights Amazing Race (on my dvr) and loved that it was filmed so close to us. Wish I had known they were going to be so close! I am also team cowboys. :)

Is the archery thing going on this weekend at Kamakura?

Dana, I tried to reply to your comment via email but you don't have your email set up (you can find AWESOME step by step instructions on how to do that here I got my tours mixed up. The horseback/archery tour is on April 17th in Kamakura...

Thanks Jes, I got it fixed. Didn't even know about that... I'm glad that isn't until April, I really want to go see that, but this weekend is already busy!
