Susanne and our children with ladies who dived for lobsters on the Chiba Peninsula.

During this tour of duty in Japan, having a penchant for climbing mountains, particularly those requiring only stamina, I climbed Mt. Fuji (called Fuji-san), elevation 12,389 feet, following a switchback trail that had been littered by hundreds of earlier climbers. I am sure this trail has subsequently been cleared by the meticulous Japanese.
