H to the Izzo

Monday - Jay-Z announces that he's doing a 7 stop tour in one day. I look for details / tickets and there are none of either to be had.

Tuesday - The first tickets start showing up. I e-mail everyone posting them, but they're always sold.

Wednesday - More tickets on craigslist / ebay. I am still e-mailing them, almost get tickets, but don't.

The Million Dollar Question


August 11th, 2011. Chiba, Japan.

A mix of confusion and awe as I step off the platform.

I must have made a mistake. But maybe a good mistake.

Birds caw and cicadas click gently, filling the warm afternoon air with sounds of nature. The train platform is open to the air and on the other side of the tracks is a high fence. Beyond it, a bicycle and walking path leading to a park.

Children are running around and playing in the park, but surprisingly quietly. Very Japanese.
