Melissa had the excellent idea to steal a peek at the Sumo wrestlers that practice every morning. It was 30 minute train ride so we had to set the alarm in order to meet up at 6am. We arrived and caught a pretty awesome show--
Those gloves, while sexy as hell, serve absolutely no purpose... so at some point, mid afternoon, I stopped by a convenient store and copped these joints... I opted for the 'Hello Kitty's'... when in Rome ;)
After being in the elements for nearly 7 hours, restaurants on this side of town FINALLY opened up and we ducked into a warm spot that just so happened to specialize in Unagi (eel). YUM.
Finally, we made it to the base...about 11 hours into our day, I was sleepy, but amped. Stay tuned tomorrow for pics of the Curly Troops where I met nearly 50 transitioning or natural active duty personnel!
