My wayward brother and his girlfriend announced the birth of my niece Ella yesterday. Everybody seems to be fine and my brother seems almost silly happy from the emails I've got. Big congratulations everyone!

    Congratulations Janne, and to your wayward brother too. ...My second daughter was born here in Nara exactly one month ago; bringing much joy to our lives but also undoubtedly a lot of work and a significant shift in lifestyle.

    Nice blog by the way; your observations make for an interesting diversion when I check in occasionally. Keep it up ;)
