I’m posting this week’s photo from the road in order to bring attention to the blogging for Japan initiative (#JapanLife and #Blog4Japan for all Tweeps out there).
The idea is that bloggers will unite and post articles about Japan hoping to bring attention to the tsunami recovery effort and travelers will once again return to this incredible island nation.
I wish I could post a real photo from Japan, but unfortunately I’ve never been there. So here’s a photo of me eating sushi and drinking Japanese beer at my favorite sushi joint in Washington, DC.
I had the pleasure of spending the last week in our nation’s capital with Jett Thomason, a good friend of mine who just returned from Guinea in West Africa. The whole week he was in a honeymoon phase of reentry, enjoying everything the District has to offer: from the new Gauguin exhibition at the National Gallery to tasty micro brews in Colombia Heights.
He blogs at the No Leave Travel Blog. Check it out. He’s worked in places like Afghanistan and Rwanda and sent home posts from the road after traveling through some off the beaten track destinations such as Moldova and Kenya.
