Last night I had a chance to walk around Kyoto with some colleagues. Kyoto is a beautiful city, one of my favorites in Japan and it's filled with historic temples and monuments. In just 45-minutes, we covered four temples, various oddities and a Starbucks. The temples, two of which are pictured here, were breathtaking. One of them dated back to 749 A.D. I also passed a strange and suspicious building with a banner hanging out front reading "Individual Satisfaction Act." I can't imagine what goes on in that building, but it looked like a cheap hotel. Later, I saw an unusual bike with a round, wooden steering wheel under a Christmas Tree. The Japanese call this kind of bike an "Angel Cycle." My tour culminated in a trip to Starbucks. The Starbucks in Kyoto is much like the Starbucks at 7th and Montana ... except that instead of Apple Fritters, they specialize in Beef Stew Pie ...!
