Here are some sweeping generalizations and observations I’ve made in the past week here in the Yokohama area:
• Dachshunds are the dog of choice for pets here. (we’re up to five for five with the dachshund count).
• All Caucasians wear sunglasses.
• Rice is surprisingly expensive and fish is incredibly cheap.
• Going anywhere near a Japanese street is a death wish.
• I am very tall (in case I forget, I am informed of this several times daily).

a long-haired standard dachshund is tempted by and apple.
