Sleepless night in Tokyo

Jul 14, 2023,01:21 AM

I woke up this morning at 1,30 AM, after 3 hours of sleeping. I went downstairs to the family Mart to feed my body, because the mind is always spinning fast. I've checked the distance and yesterday I've walked for 10 km. Kappabashi, then Mitama Matsuri and then Mori Building rooftop. This is a special holiday, because it's my first abroad after COVID, but more important, I have my new toy. I must thank Christianch for letting go this amazing LE, I love the Finissimo and owned just basic production models, so this is the icing on the top. We reached an agreement in 2 hours, he was more than friendly and I have to say that it's rare to meet a collector who's glad to sell his watch to another aficionado without taking (fair and right) advantage of a LE. He's a true gentleman. the watch has arrived before my departure, just in time for being my fellow sidekick. I went to the boutique here in Ginza to add an extra link, it took 5 minute and now it fits perfectly. Once again, thank you so much! Just few photos with the toy at work. 02.45 AM early breakfast, at 5AM I slept again till 9,30πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

When in Tokyo I usually end up walking...

 By: mdg : July 14th, 2023-01:28 least 5 miles/day on the low end. The upside? Good exercise and seeing the city from the ground and not from a car/bus. The downside? There is none! There are no 'bad' neighborhoods (although Roppongi at night can be sketchy) and if you do get lost,... 

You gave the right adviceπŸ‘Œ

But I'll go the Ginza bar, it's closer to my hotel😁

Good idea!

Your food selection should be more daring , so many good food with funky cool packaging in japanese mart 😁

I'm sure Piccolochimico is eating better food than he photographed!

To not eat well in Tokyo would be a waste as the food is both excellent and inexpensive.

+ Amazing packaging

Yes! But Japan is reducing packaging these days!

 By: patrick_y : August 20th, 2023-07:59
Due to government initiative, the government taxes those fancy packagings now. So let's say you're buying cookies; you can pay 1000 yen for the cookies in a plastic bag, 1100 yen for the cookies in a paper box, and 1200 yen for the cookies in a metal tin!... 

πŸ‘wow you are very welcome and I am glad the Bulgari Revolution LE found a great, new home πŸ₯°

Sorry for the late reply somehow I missed the post. Likewise it was a pleasure dealing with you and I really wanted the watch to go to a true Bulgari watch lover so I was glad to hear from your. Money is not everything and I am always doubtful about these...
