Places I Have Visited

Due to scheduling of mid-term exams, etc., I will have 10 days off in mid-May. I have been toying with a visit to Japan, one of the top destinations I have yet to visit on my Korean sojourn, and this is the perfect time of year for Kyoto. 

Today was Election Day, a school holiday, so I went to What The Book in Itaewon for the guide book--actually I got two: the Lonely Planet Kyoto guide, and the Rough Guide to Japan. I am a fan of LP books (and now the iPhone apps), but the Rough Guide seemed similarly comprehensive and considerably less expensive. I'll let you know ...

Anyway, it seemed serendipitous and apropos that my pal Gavin sent this email forward (not that I want to encourage them) with subject line that is the title of this post. It reads:
I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone else.
I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognises you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often..
I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older..
One of my favourite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
I may have been in Continent, and I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing.
From one unstable person to another... I hope everyone is happy in your head - we're all doing pretty good in mine!

You can buy and printout sections of LP books via the net.
