Man, this city is plenty cool.
Kinda New York, kinda china, kinda blade runner.
Lots of cool grey buildings.
Lots of well-dressed people.
Lots of beautiful women wearing high boots and short skirts.
My hotel room in 2m x 1m x 1m, and it's super rad.
And the mini tv has a pixelated porn station on it.
The toilet seats are warm, and they can spray hot water at your anus with pinpoint precision.
And then blow it dry after.
The vending machines will give you a HOT can of coffee.
It's not way off in the future, but def a few years ahead, i'd say.
The whole place also seems pretty darn civilized.
In comparison to china, for sure.
On my 1st night here, i went to a super lame place called Girl Bar cause i thought it might have sexy dancers or something, and i was ushered in by the girls out on the street. but i just paid way too much for a cup of tea, and had a non-conversation with the server. Such are my japanese skills.
Watashiwa beijitarian desu - i'm veg. That's about all i know.
Anyhow, in desperation i looked for another bar, and found some small one where a drunken birhtday boy was pouring champagne, and immediately poured me a glass. So in the end me and these two guys ( a couple it turned out) ended up getting quite drunk, which was all quite entertaining. one guy spoke a wee bit of Eng, and the other a wee bit of mandarin, so we got by, just barely.
We sang a bit of karaoke, drank sake beer, champagne, and some girly mango stuff, which was pretty awesome.
Then got to my capsule hotel, lay down, and realized it was 5 am.
