OK, OK, blog reading world. We've had ourselves quite the hiatus, to say the least.
Before I move on to sharing with you stories from Life Post-Japan. I feel compelled to get a few things out of my system. Such as, the following pictures which, for one reason or another (mostly because these photos were taken and given to me by other people, far too many to list), never made it into any previous blogs.

This will be really boring for people who are not interested in seeing snapshots of Melissa+Strangers, or Strangers+Strangers. (However, this may be fascinating to creepy internet types that I don't know. Creepy internet types, please stop feasting your creepy eyes on myself and people I love. I know deep down, you're better than that. Now, get off the internet and go make some real friends. Thank you.)

And with that, I give you the following photographical catagories:

This was the smallest room I have ever stayed in.
It was supposed to be a "double" but our futon couldn't even fit on the floor.
When I reached my arms out, I could almost touch both walls at once.
I guess you get what you pay for, and at 3000en a night in Tokyo,
I'm don't know what we were expecting. It was, an adventure.
