Tokyo – New Job. New Country. New Life. 0

Here I am sitting in my weekly apartment hotel for the last evening after having spent the larger part of 2 weeks here. If these weeks have been any indication of the upcoming months, then it is and will be undoubtedly one of, if not the most dynamic, challenging,

Come & Go / Reflections 0
