Hi John. Sounds like you have some great memories. This is my first post. Maybe I'll find a place in the forum where you share some of them. I have a funny memory of biking in Kyoto. My wife & I rented bikes in west Kyoto, Arashiyama. We rode throughout the area and loved it. Toward the end when getting tired I made the mistake of putting 14 kilos of backpack in the front basket for the first time. In slow motion I lost control of the front and veered like a midday drunk into someone's nice bush along the bike path. I felt horrible. An old Japanese lady came out, smiled, and started shooing me away with her broom. We both laughed but I still feel bad about that. They have meticulous landscaping in that area. I've never felt so slow motion helpless.

The "slow motion helpless" part of your story cracked me up! Regards from Michigan.
