Nippon no Mirai ha Sekai no Urayamu
David sent me this link, which is hilarious but points out the differences between the Japan seen by the outside world and the reality of living here. My satirical story would read something like, "Spaceship Brings Japan Miracle of Insulation." From outside, Japan is a high-tech success story, from inside it, at times, is tenuously clawing out of 3rd world status. Consult my old photo entitled "2nd largest economy in the world." Make no mistake, this photo is no aberration, you can find homes like this 5 minutes from anywhere in Japan.
attempting to silence the voices in my head.
