I got my Certificate of Eligibilty the other day. That is the paperwork that I need in order to get my visa. I'm gonna go to the consulate this week. That place is sweet. I went to the predeparture orientation on friday. That was really weird. The program leader gave me a packet of stuff to know. Most of them are rules: no drugs, no sex, no getting married, no adopting children, no changing religion, the usual stuff.

Me: One question
Her: Yes
Me: There is the really cool thing in Japan called keirin, so basically, can I gamble?
Her: Uh.

Yes I can! Sorry, there goes all hope of any of my friends getting souveniers. Unless my cyclist wins.

9 days, 21 hours and 10 minutes till my plan takes off, but who's counting?

Good luck Peter and don't spend all your money gambling. Or perhaps you could win the $$$ you need to buy the new pocket translator. Gambling is bad, then again the Shunter and I are doing a MTB race this weekend called the Dash for Cash, isn't that the same thing???

Have fun, I've always thought you had your head on straight.......
