The Space Between Us and the Ground Below Us, or: Why I Traveled to Japan. ⇒

    7 March 2018, early morning

I tried to relax. I thought of the upcoming festival. I thought of how you can spend your whole life wanting something, just to freeze up when you finally get it. On this island, I was an obvious outsider; I clearly didn’t belong. Every (heavenly) bowl of ramen burnt the hell out of my throat. But I could ask a cop for directions and I knew he wouldn’t blow me away.

This article is amazing, and not what I expected it to be at all. A Black gay American writes about his travels in Japan.

This is a post from my link log: If you click the title of this post you will be taken the web page I am discussing.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
