I apologise for the lateness post, and of the poor quality of the one yesterday. I have been sleeping badly the last couple of nights; the guy next to me snores horribly. And I have been getting in quite late, when there are many people in the living room, which makes it difficult to concentrate on writing.

I have modified the "Kyoto Procession" post today, so there will be some more interesting reading.

Today I went to Kobe. There isn't much to see on Kobe, but they do have that special kind of beef. To me the thought of cows being reared on beer and given massages to give them an extra tender fat marbled beef, was just too difficult to resist. So the first thing I did when I got to Kobe was to find the tourist information, and have them show me a good Kobe beef restaurant.

Wow that was quite a meal. I was at the restaurant for an hour and a half, and all I did was eat. I thought that since this was such a special meal, I didn't want to save on the price, so I chose a set menu meal with 3 starters, a 250g sirloin steak, soup, rice and dessert. At the end I thought I was going to die. I felt like the guy in Monty Pythons "The meaning of life" when they force that last bit of tongue down him, I was ready to burst. But it was worth it, and it's an experience I will long remember.
