I was in Kyoto

I was pretty busy and I didn't say I wouldn't be able to blog for a few days. I was actually traveling to Kyoto, the oldest city in Japan. Of course, I didn't have enough time to see AC360 or Convention, but when I was staying at a room, CNN was always on so that I might see some segment where I can see Anderson. And I did! I saw a short report from NOLA during Larry King Live and learned that AC was still there. After that, I saw this clip.

Anderson appeared for only a few seconds but that was enough to make me excited!

When I came back and downloaded 360 podcast, I found that they had 360 show on Monday night and Anderson was anchoring from NOLA. He even interviewed Obama from there. He looks so handsome outside. In Japan we have a phrase describing extremely handsom guys, which literally means "drippy guy." Hmmm.... even a Japanese couldn't understand why "drippy man" means handsome but Anderson looks extremely handsome even when he is all wet.

As I wrote before, I'll post some pictures of Kyoto. This was my 5th time to go there but still there are many places to see.

Bamboo Grove


Tenryuji Temple



Toji Temple

Byodoin Temple


Fushimi Inari Shrine

Have you ever seen the movie "SAYURI" or "Memoirs of a Geisha"? Since I saw it, I have always wanted to visit this shrine. There are about 1,000 red sacred gate on every path, even on the top of the mountain.

















Even for those tiny paths, they built gates!
