Its a hell of a long journey  , from door to breeder around 23 hours or so , to add to that an hour delay on take off , this one seemed longer than ever . So its not surprising that after that , and 6 hours with the breeders , that when I got back from the meal , I just gave into my body and went to bed at 8.10 pm .Im always the one to say stay up late to beat the jet leg , now I don't , just sleep when you can , blog and facebook can wait . So its now 11pm and im raring to go ! So back to the beginning , and where is that you ask , where do you think ? Maruhiro Koi farm ! Theres nothing I can say about this place that you haven't read before , the youngest son of the Hirasawa empire ( and I think that is valid description !!!!!! ) , his fish are great and get better every year , on arrival there where some people there just finishing , so after they left I thought lets get in , lots of very nice koi in here that need bowling .But as ususal Hinori was having none of it , coffee first and chat , its almost religious like!
