Quite the upset today at Ryogoku Kokugikan, the Sumo stadium in Tokyo.. On day 11 of the 15 day tournament, mr Hakuho was defeated in the last match of the day, (he had won all of his previous 10 matches).. and mr Kisenosato was ice cold/rock solid/mr cool after his victory as the the crowd went completely wild & threw all the cushions from their box seats into the ring.. SUMO = AWESOME, & yes, since returning to our hotel room, I have been eating a lot of sushi, working on my Sumo actions, & challenging Alyda to ‘enter my world of sumo pain!’

We are fast becoming addicted to Japan after being here for only one day.. We have 13 days to go & I already want to stay longer.. Hopefully I’ll hook up with Hattori Hanzo & get me some steel that will accelerate my Samurai powers to level 77..

A quick message…  if you are getting married, (congratulations x492!), & you’re trying to contact us, send an email to info[at]toddhuntermcgaw[dot]com[dot]au, or go to our website & say hello/konnichiwa via our contact page .. don’t ring my phone.. We’re checking emails as often as we can but will not have internet access every day.. (I’ll be in the Japanese winter wilderness with Pai Mai, working on my ‘5 point palm exploding heart technique’)..
