As of Tuesday, November 22, I am legally authorised to work in Japan! I got an email Tuesday morning from Price Waterhouse Coopers--who were handling my visa application for Amazon--telling me that I had the visa, and to let them know how I wanted to get my passport back. I decided to waste no time, but to go into Tokyo myself that very afternoon to pick it up.
Instead of a traditional blog entry, I have put together a slideshow over at KodakGallery.com that will show you my trip at the same time the captions tell you about it. So click this link to get started. You can click the "Play" button at the top right to start an automatic slideshow, or use the right arrow button to move ahead a picture at a time. If you are in slideshow mode, and it moves to the next picture before you have time to read the caption, despair not! Just click on the "Pause" button that replaced the "Play" button at the top right, then use the back arrow to move back to the picture with the long caption. Once you have finished reading the caption, you can resume the slideshow by clicking the "Play" button again.
Also, if any of the pictures strike your fancy, you can purchase a print or two by using the drop box at the top left (the one that says: 4 x 6" - $0.15) and the "Add to Cart" button.
