Uninspired gourmet

I don't know what's happened. In the last few weeks I've completely lost my appetite and all inspiration. I'm searching for it. I will find it, I'm sure, in time. But please bear with me for a while.

I'll be back. Promise.

Sushi gourmet

And I'm back.

Sorry for the silence - it's all been a bit of a whirlwind. During the past two and a half months I've been on the road. Dili, Bali, Canberra, Melbourne, Singapore, Tokyo, Shikoku, Osaka, Nara, Kyoto, Jakarta, Aceh, London and now back in Freetown. It's been crazy. Crazy I tell you.

Catching my breath now. Maybe this picture from the beautiful Japanese gardens we visited will help.

I promised that I had lots of good stuff to tell you about from Japan. What better way to start than with some delicious, melt in your mouth, fresh as it gets - sushi.

The place we went to is in the tsujiki area. The tsujiki fish market is the biggest fish market in the world and is a must see for anyone visiting Tokyo. For sushi in Japan it's best to go at lunch time as it's way cheaper than at dinner time.

We tipped up at 12 midday. By 12:20 we were all paid up, ready to go again. So quick, so delicious, our bellies bursting from having eaten too much, too fast.
