Ole Guiness and Dr.Hawkins

[22nd - 23rd May 2006]

Tokyo is always Tokyo, I like this place too. Work is always work, Giovanna is starting to show signs of jet lag mixed with being tired of such a long trip (by her standards), but she is great and though it shows she is putting up with it quite well.
On Tuesday I managed to meet Johnny-boy for a quick drink at an Irish pub in Shinjuku. I won't go through the usual great feeling of being with him, it's a shame that he couldn't make it to Kyoto on Sunday, but we spent some quality time together talking about work and life in general. I really enjoyed the evening, on Thursday I will see him again for dinner to close off this trip in a great way!

Back to the hotel I was swamped by mails from my boss and problems from the factory. Unfortunately there are massive delays in our productions and this is affecting quite negatively the results here. I am trying my hardest to get the boat safe to the harbor before it sinks, but this whole situation is quite a strain to me, mostly because I feel a lot of responsibility towards my agent Kutsunugi san and the clients with whom I am on very friendly terms now.

We'll see what happens next....

Hows the guiness in Japan compare to the Dublin or London(do they still brew it there?).
Perhaps this is one for the good Dr. to prescribe on though?

Kev: I don't think that I have ever had the "proper" stuff (never been to Ireland), but it was pretty good nonetheless...

Nigel: 'nuff said! It was simply perfect! :D
