Happy New Year!

As our joint resolution we've decided to go on a Green Diet, beginning with ten days of cleansing. The idea is that by eating foods that are alkaline (instead of acidic) you lower your bodies ph, which should be around 7.3. The problem is that most western food is very acidic and your body has to struggle to keep your internal ph down, but by eating these alki foods your body gets more energy, less sleep, less sickness, and overall goodness. Here's a ph food chart if you're interested. An excess of acid can lead to all range of problems like fatigue, cancer, osteoporosis, cancer, obesity, and possibly viruses. Worth checking out.

Here's a shot from Amerika-mura (America Town) in Osaka. We were surprised by the relative lack of English writing and American people.

Happy New Year.
Yes I agree with Bun, take time adjusting to the new culture and enjoy it. Good luck with your new year's resolutions. Sounds interesting, but not for me. I'm going out for a Big Mac. :o)

Glad to hear that you are doing well - I think that you need to be careful when trying other diet alternatives - I checked the web site and one area had last been updated in 2002 - so be careful. mom
