Roller Skating

What year is it?
Sometimes going abroad is like time traveling. In Japan, the constant use of fax machines, and 90's American music, made me feel like I'd gone back in time. Here avoiding mad roller bladers makes me giggle and wonder what year it is.

Ben and I have come across skate-offs, skate performances, and skate dances. It makes me wonder why skating ever went out of style, the guys here make it look pretty cool.

Last night Ben and I watched some skating street performers. They had gathered a large crowd, and had some impressive tricks. Ben volunteered himself to be part of the performance, and lied down next to nine other volunteers to be the very end of a human speed bump.
