Exactly how heavy is a hundred pounds...

Since I now have the chance to carry a bunch of stuff back to Michigan, I decided to get the most out of the opportunity. Unfortunately, Northwest has reduced their checked baggage weight limit from 70 pounds to 50 pounds per suitcase. ;_; Still, I'm allowed two suitcases, so that makes 100 pounds of books and presents I can take back with me, not counting my carryon.

This inspired me to spend the day shopping. I bought nearly every manga on my recommendation list, which turned out to be quite a hefty amount. I even bought a rather extravagant present for the family...but I'm sure they'll get a lot of use out of it. My prize find of the day was a pair of cookbooks that tell how to make shoujin ryouri, the 100% vegetarian traditional dishes devised by Japanese Buddhist monks.

Don't ask me how I'm going to transport 100 pounds of luggage plus carryons from Moriyama to the Kansai International Airport. @_@ That will be the adventure.
