gregruben I know the crazy Japanese toilet is kind of a cliche but I gotta say I was very impressed. First of all, it's surprisingly satisfying to have an electronic control panel with physical buttons next to the toilet. Plus you can actually flush the toilet paper, which I haven't experienced in months. And not only does this toilet offer multiple bidet settings, it can even play sound effects of rushing water to mask embarrassing poop sounds. 2d
  •   palmerkeen my dream toilet...I've made the decision to move to the house upstairs, number one reason is it has a bum gun 2d
  •   gregruben @palmerkeen just wait til you try one of these, it's a tremendous improvement on the bum gun imo 2d

gregruben Lunch was takoyaki. They're fried balls of piping hot grilled octopus. Mine were covered in some kind of mayo and spicy sauce. Very good and cheap! 2d

gregruben Sometimes Tokyo can be confusing if you don't understand Japanese, on the other hand there are maps inside public bathrooms 2d

gregruben Soba restaurant interior. I love the visual aesthetic of Tokyo...not just the quirkiness but the sleepy tans and greys of subway station bathrooms and places like this. 2d

gregruben Legit soba for breakfast. It tasted as good as the numbered plastic model suggested it could 2d

gregruben Spent 6 hours wandering Tokyo today between flights. First thing I did was get breakfast at this soba place. I was very confused at first by this ordering machine until I realized they had a big window filled with numbered plastic models of every available dish. 2d

gregruben It's with a heavy heart that I leave Indonesia. My almost 2 months here was amazing, and I could happily stay for much longer. Actually I have a feeling that I'll be back some day soon...there are such a ridiculous amount of things to see here, it'd take years of traveling to get bored. Thank you again to @palmerkeen and @bobosinta for the bottomless hospitality and friendship ️ not to be too corny but you guys totally made my trip as great as it was! 3d
  •   jaxpartlow It was awesome seeing your photos everyday from your time there. Thanks for sharing! Happy you had such an amazing experience 2d
  •   gregruben @jaxpartlow thanks Jax! There are more photos to come, since I've got a big backlog of stuff from my camera to sort through. I'm glad you've enjoyed them :) 2d
  •   palmerkeen @gregruben thanks for the corniness - I'm so happy you've enjoyed my adopted home as much as I have. you were the best host we couldve asked for - openminded, inquisitive, and woles. Its been a great time exploring this place with you and becoming good friends. Our papasan will always be open to you! 2d

gregruben There's a big gemstone craze happening in Indonesia right now. I first noticed it in Central Sulawesi in February but this past month I've seen it everywhere. Crowds of men huddle on sidewalks day and night tumbling stones and setting them in rings. Almost every middle aged man has at least one of these rings, often 3 or 4. Billboards advertise gemstone festivals complete with competitions, live music, and reptile shows. 3d
