Wed, 27 Sep 2000 Trip to Guilin!

My second (and shorter) vacation is already far behind... Guilin is a wonderful place, probably one of the best I ever saw in my life. I recommend everybody to visit it, just for eyes pleasure :-)
There is only one problem: City restaurants & taxis (and probably others) are so expensive! The reason is simple: They just want to get your money (they use the word kill), and prices could be multiplied by 5 or 10 if you are not chinese. It is really a good idea (for price & taste!) to eat in a 5 stars hotel!

I bought a PALM Vx in Hong-Kong (the normal way from Tokyo to Guilin). This device is really wonderful: Very small, tons of applications, and so easy to use!

Tue, 05 Sep 2000 I love Koh-Samui!

Vacation is over... Koh-Samui is a nice place: Weather, people, prices (!!), etc... Thierry & me spent most of our time playing chess (we were in the same club a few years ago, before I came to Japan). I met there a lot of western people who seem to have a good life: Of course money is not so big, but quality of life seems so higher than in a big city like Tokyo!

My server crashed 3 days before I came back from Thailand. What is strange is that the problem was a power-off!!! As only few people (I would say about 1) live in my home, the investigation should be easy ;-)

I just started to install a photo gallery, helped with slooze. It will stay protected by password until I have at least 10 pictures installed!

Oh, next week I have vacation again: One week in Guilin (South China). According to this site, this is a very nice place...
