The cast of characters I have met in almost 3 weeks of travel has been one of the best parts of the trip. They say everyone has a story to tell and everyone has a book in them. All of these people can say yes to both those statements.
Kenny – An immigrant to Tokyo from Nigeria. Been here 20 years with a Japanese wife and 5 kids. He sells hotdogs from a small truck painted a bright mustard yellow. I respect your hustle Kenny!

3 Random Japanese Guys – Was walking the grounds in Kamakura when one of them approaches me and asks where I am from. This proceeds into a 3 minute use of sign language, body language, pointing at my Yankee cap and any other way to communicate. All smiles afterward.
Ty – My roommate at the Hilo Bay Hostel in Hawaii. Just so happens to be from Thailand so I ask him a bunch of questions. Says when I visit to look him up. I emailed him today before I leave for Bangkok and he responded. Excellent!
