3 semanas en Japón - Parte 1: Tokio

By Mike Daikubara in Tokyo, Japan I recently took a 3 weeks trip to Japan to see my family, relative and friends. The main focus was to help my father settle into his new life after losing his mother and wife this spring. The trip was not all fun but I did have a few […]

Museo del Fuego de Boston

I’ve passed by this building numerous times but have never been inside until last week. Open on Saturdays (and sometimes on Wednesdays) to the public, this building was the Boston Fire Museum which was jam packed with fire fighting memorabilia from the Greater Boston area. The place is owned and operated by The Boston Sparks Association […]

‘Glosta’ Hummer

My wife and I took a quick day trip up to Gloucester Massachusetts. After having lived in New England for 6 years, I finally learned how to pronounce the name of this place today! It was a cloudy day so it wasn’t as scenic as it’s supposed to be on a nice day. Ended up […]
