Things you do when you have a jet lag

I always loved Aslan of Narnia and this legendary statute reminds me of childhood reading such tales of wonder  – at the entrance of Mitsukoshi Department store, Ginza, Tokyo.

It’s a perfect meetup place for shoppers just like Hachiko in Shibuya is to many in transit. It’s a rainy weekday morning before opening of Ginza stores … quiet for a change.Hoshino Morning Service – sigh of relief.  Such a luxury to be served by an apron clad server so polite. Yes, Starbuck’s down the street. Same pricing – which is amazing.  No tip to leave either … it’s a quiet respite time like this, I love Japan.  Service level is like no other.

Not San Francisco’s Yoga Tree – a cozy space.

Judith would be happy to see this:) After all, I tribute her for spreading this practice to the depleted urbanites who need it most.  Perfect for Vattas and Pittas among us.

Quietly observing the passerbys with no reaction  … 7 year old Shiba:)  He’s in his zen space. Yet he’s protecting his sanctuary and his master – the rice merchant with a small corner shop.

Reminisce and ruminate at 4am. Things you do when you have a jet lag…
