Half-day in Fukuoka for iPhone 6 Plus (1/2)

What was I thinking?

And so, with my pre-order successful on the afternoon of September 12, all I needed to do left was picking it up at the store.

To London, again

Meanwhile, a reenactment of the royalties taking a walk in the park is in progress. That was interesting to watch. It should be a nice counterpart to what I'll be seeing in London.

Off to London

There's my ride on the back

This is the very first time I am going overseas for business purposes. In about half an hour, I'll be flying to London to check on things for the training program inset up for June. I hope things go well.
