Tokyo bound!

In a slightly surreal start to 2009 I found myself Tokyo bound to talk to the Japanese Institute of Architects about town planning. Some may know that in addition to my union and political activities I have been in 'town planning' for some 25 years. My experience, and ability to present ideas, seems to mean I have knowledge/ skills to help "enlighten" (thats what the polite leter says) others about planning.

Fingers crossed that I can blog you some stories about the coming weeks experiences. Remarkable.

Of linked interest - will I be delayed by Heathrow protests?
My carbon offset costs £41.90 - I intend to find out how BA use this money.

Like West Brom premier league wins my blogging is intermittent at the moment - some might say moribund! As matters settle down in the New Year then a return to blogging will take place. Not only football survival, but Welsh Labour's leadership debate, the euro elections - let alone the sad state of affairs in Gaza.
