Took a Break

Man, is it already March 2011? I guess I took a little more of a break than I intended to. Lots of things have happened of course so I hope I get back on track and keep on posting my adventures and stories here for you from the beautiful island of Saipan!

So, welcome back but I will have to share with you on another post about my quick side trip before the holidays to Narita-san Shinsho-ji ("Narita mountain new victory temple") in Narita, Chiba perfecture, Japan. The picture is of my friend Andrew looking at a huge lantern. I think he missed the huge statues that were on both sides of Fudo myoo, a Japanese fire god of wisdom, of whom the temple is dedicated to. It was a surprise to see and it evoked memories of one of my favorite foreign films named, Heaven and Earth. Beautiful and heartbreaking, the protagonist forsakes all earthly pleasures (even his love for a woman) in exchange for victory in battle and the protection of Fudo yoo upon his countrymen. Good stuff! More stories to follow so come back again later.

Ti napu.
