The mountain wins again

Posted: May 14, 2006 in Uncategorized

This morning I woke up, looked out the window, and had my first indication that there is an end to this city. From the moment I got here, a mixture of haze and low clouds has obscured the horizon, making the entire city seem to stretch out forever, just a mass of steel and concrete interspersed with the occasional patch of greenery. However today, for just a few hours, the mountains to the west poked up above the brown haze of the city, showing that even Tokyo has its limits.
