Yeaaahhhh!!! Look at me!! I'm so happy I made it to the top... Now where's the cable-car down?
That's the Sea of Japan in the distance ...apparantly
My "Victory photo", taken from the rim of the crater of the great volcano, Mount Yotei.
(Taken at 3.30am following a 4-hour solo climb by torchlight!)
The view was not quite as stunning as I'd been led to believe! Shortly after this was taken, the wind picked up and the rain began to mercilessly lash down!
(See The Daily Mumble for the full story)
Granny took pity on me
Having set the world record for the fastest desent of Mt. Yotei in the pouring rain (1.5 hours, the guide books state that it's 3 hours minimum), I made my way to the local station, where this kind (batty) old lady fed me bread, cake, rice and hot tea, before telling her son to drive me home!
Yotei San and I
An improvement in the weather yesterday saw me climb my local mountain - although because of
post-volcano-climb-granny's-hip-syndrome I took the gondola most of the way up!

This week we had 60 university students staying for three nights - no sleep for us what with the parties continuing until 5am! Still, some of those first year boys were pretty cute when all dressed up...
