Who's Da Bomb?
Tokyo entails a LOT of walking. I was trudging to the conference center this morning lugging a fairly heavy bag. One of the conference attendees offered to help me carry it. I resisted and hestitated but eventually gave in and handed over my bag. He was genuinely sweet and extremely charming. During the course of the day, he helped me haul my bag back and forth several times. I was moved by the unexpected kind gesture from the wonderful stranger. It was only later that I realized that he was a hot shot Deputy Minister from Georgia!
