It’s odd experiencing a foreign “holiday” like St. Patrick’s Day. I’m not Irish, so I consider the current concept of this day as particularly American. Right or wrong, it seems to me this concept is true in many places.

I’ve experienced the day in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Mexico City, and Brussels. They’re all interesting in their own way.

This is my third SPD in Japan, and I possessed no idea it was coming. Last week I realized I missed Valentine’s Day.

My calendar needs an upgrade.
