ContikiAnime Expo 99

Well, here's a day by day report on both my Contiki and AX trip(s)!! The photos are at the bottom of each page!

18th July 1999

The last day of AX... I woke up late in the morning, and wandered around for a bit, before going and meeting up with Toshi and Besh. Besh was meant to be leaving at 2pm that day, so I had to go to say goodbye.

Well, he didn't. He changed his plane to the evening, instead.

A group of us met up in the bar in the early evening, and we all said goodbye to Besh before he left... we didn't do much, just sit and talk and take photos. ^_^

The Viz group all went off for some Viz dinner, and the rest of us went seperately to the same place. It was yummy, but as with all American food, there was way too much food on the plate!!

This year's pervert (I'm guessing that I'm going to meet one at every AX I go to - it seems to be a trend! Last year's was some silent guy who stood right behind girls and followed my sister places *shudder*) was a guy who made us girls feel creepy, and tried to touch us females when we didn't want to be touched - Mr. Octopus! I probably should have smacked his hand and said a sharp 'No!' but instead I tried to move as far away as possible and hid behind other, non-pervert nice men! I was glad when the octopus-man left!!

Afterwards, everyone was too tired for another party, so we decided to meet at the bar that night.

It was a pretty lazy day, and so only a few of us turned up. It was nice, though. Just having a few to talk to... but we were all tired, so we went back, and I went to my hotel and fell asleep again.

I didn't do much that day, not much to talk about, but it was still a good, relaxing and fun day!!

A cute and silly little Japanese game A cute and silly little Japanese game that Shin-chan brought along. You press a tooth at a time - if it snaps shut, you lose! (I did so well at it a few times!!)
