After a few days here, I have managed to get a few pics together. Still no pics of the place since I'm still getting settled and it looks like hell broke loose in here.

Après quelques jours, voiçi quelques photos. Rien de l'appart encore car je suis encore en train de m'installer et c'est un bordel incroyable ici.


My first purchase from the numeous vending machines her: A hot keg of coffee... and Tommy Lee Jones as spokemodel for Boss coffee brand.

Mon 1er achat dans une des nombreuses machines distributrices: Un petit baril de café chaud... et aussi Tommy Lee Jones prêtant sa tronche à la marque de café Boss

The microwave oven display. I'm still trying to figure it out. Apparently I can make toasts in there! I'll let you know how they turn out.

Les boutons du micro-onde. J'essaie encore de déchiffrer le tout. Apparament je peut faire des toast! Je vous laisserai savoir comment ça tourne.

1st trip to the grocery dispelled the myth that everything is expensive in Japan. Sushi grade salmon, now marinating in soy sauce and ginger for a little over $3.00 CAD.

Ma 1ère visite a l'épicerie a réussi à détruire le mythe que tout est dispendieux au Japon. Du saumon de qualité sushi, qui marine maintenant dans la sauce soya et le gingembre pour à peine plus de 3.00$ CAD.

The result: A little too salty but quite good, I'm gonna have to get used to the sodium content of their soy sauce. In fact everything is kind of on the salty side here.

Le résultat: Un peu trop salé mais bon quand même. Je vais devoir m'habituer au sodium, tout ici est pas mal salé.

To go with the salmon and to bring a little bit of Réal to the meal ;) $12CAD

En accompagnement au saumon et un hommage à Réal ;) 12.00$CAD

With leftover bread from the plane. :p

Avec le petit pain d'avion :p


A nice little restaurant where none of the staff speaks english so we had to point at what we wanted on the display menu outside. It was quite tasty and filling. Notice the fork... I think they were afraid we couldn't use chopsticks.

Un petit resto sympatique ou personne ne parle anglais. On est sorti pour pointer ce qu'on voulais sur présentoir à l'extérieur. C'étais pas mal bon. Voyez la fourchette... j'pense qu'ils avaient peur qu'on ne soit pas capable de se servir des baguettes.

An example of the diplay menus outside restaurants. They are everywhere (not always as nice looking and elaborate) so it makes it easy to choose. This is all plastic food, some of it looks real enough!

Un exemple des présentoirs à la porte des restos. Il y en a presque partout (Pas toujours aussi beau et élaborés) alors c'est facile de choisir. C'est tout en plastique même si souvent ça a l'air pas mal vrai.

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Great work!

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post's to be precisely what I'm looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs? I wouldn't mind creating a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome blog!
