Speaking of which, I feel like I'm just getting into the groove of things
here and having a great time and the idea of leaving tomorrow feels premature.
As soon as I finish this, I plan to change my tickets and stay another
few days. I have a cheap (albeit small) place in a perfect location (3min.
walk to the trains station, 5 mins. from Central square, and 30 seconds
from this internet cafe) and people have started recognizing me and becoming
more enthused. It does not displease me to walk down the streets of Nagano
and hear someone call out, "Hey, it's the Internet guy". Last night, I
stood outside of Thrity's a small, very overcrwded place where people gather
at night, talking to and taping the Bosnina luge coach, the Brazilian bobsled
team (the subject of another video short) and so many other interesting
folks. How can I leave now?
