Jisaboke

I’m just back from another Japan trip – my 14th – and I have the jisaboke something bad.

Jisaboke means jetlag in Japanese, but I’m informed that it actually translates more entertainingly as “time difference stupidity,” which actually is far more descriptive of what’s going on in my head right now. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on anything without epic quantities of caffeine.

Still, I had a great time and got to do some really interesting stuff I hadn’t done before.
