    Hello anyone,

    Funny thing happened today on my way to the Tocho Government building in Shinjuku.

    I had to go there today to renew my driver's license. About 4-years ago, the cops stopped me as I had illegally changed lanes and inadvertently didn't see the fuzz in waiting! Got fined and points on my license. What all this meant was that today when I went to renew my license, I was treated to over an hour schooling in the naughty class to make me a better driver before they'd hand me over a new license.

    After an age in a really boring class, driver's license was achieved. On my way out of this impressively big building, I walked past a large group of homeless people. Suddenly, one bearded and unkept individual seemed to be attacking a female foreigner as she was pushing one kid in a buggy surrounded by all her other kids!

    I've never seen any violence in all my years in Japan and I quickly ran over to help the damsel in distress. Then the homeless guy turned on me! After a bit of a scuffle and me trying to calm this guy down, I told the woman to walk on. She promptly did so, and after much swearing the homeless guy let me go.

    I finally got free of this deranged tramp, and caught up with this lady. She was such a nice lass replete with 4 kids. Suddenly, her husband arrives on the scene. He'd been across the way and couldn't get over in time to help out.

    We chatted and they thanked me. Lovely couple from Cairns. In amongst the chat I dropped in eat with a local and they've promised to sign up. I could very well find a warm welcome down there should I go that way in the future.

    Funny old world isn't it!

    By the way, the homeless in Japan are for the very most part not at all aggressive. In fact, I've been on clothing and feeding missions before to help them out and their stories are often heartbreaking. It seems what set this mad guy off was that this Aussie lady had a camera in her hand and he thought she was taking photos of him.

    It is most bizarre. Never encountered the like, ever!

    Anyway, don't let that put you off coming to Japan. It is a truly fascinating place with a marvellous culture. And, today aside, it is SO safe to visit... well, apart from the earthquakes!

    Tokyo, Sunday, April 4th, 2010.

    Dear Eat with a Local Friends,

    Just finished watching an excellent documentary on BBC world, which was looking into micro-finance. An organisation called Kiva, based in the USA, makes small loans to people to help them get their business ideas off the ground. They initially began by giving small loans to people in the underdeveloped world, but have extended the idea to the US.

    For as little as 25 US dollars, you can help them make a loan. Kiva usually get 98% of the loans back, so there is little chance of you loosing your 25 dollars (about 15 quid), and as the presenter of the documentary said, 25 dollars to him was about what he spent each week on bottled water! So he's turning to tap water and investing his money in helping the poorest of the poor help themselves.

    You get to choose who you want to help and you can manage your account on their webpage, too. You do not get any interest on your money, but you are extremely likely to get the sum invested back. Then you can reinvest it or take it back.

    Check it out on the following website:


    Kiva has very low overheads and many success stories in the underdeveloped world. I'm going to put my money where my mouth is and invest in this wonderful idea. You too can make a difference. Remember; more than 1 billion people in the underdeveloped world have to manage on less than 1 US dollar a day.

    Why not spread a little happiness for such a small price!
