I was a free man in Paris

Twenty years ago I was in Tokyo, staying at the swanky US forces hotel with its breakfast buffet (all the bacon and sausage you can eat), buying out Mandarake with Fearless Leader, and watching second season Saiyuki on my hotel bedroom's TV snd VCR player. Glorious days indeed. I shall not look upon their like again.
