Going to Japan on a business trip. The best thing is, everything is paid for! Can't wait too see an other country even though I haven't ever been out of the US. I hope to explore around and hopefully see some beetles for sale; ya know, check out the beetle breeding scene there. Although I cannot bring anything of that nature back with me, I hope to take some good pictures of what I find.

Have a safe trip, Ratmosphere! Take a picture with a big thumbs up if you see a Megasoma elephas or Dynastes neptunus!

Didn't get to see any big beetle shops as planned but I did get to see a few stag beetles! Also found a marmoset and meerkat for sale at a local pet shop there. They looked so sad though. Finally home. Being overseas gave me a new appreciation for the USA.
