Well, folks, it has been a rough couple of weeks at the Flophouse. The logistics of getting out of one country and into another are daunting (but many of you already know that, right?)
And then there are the surprises. Stuff that seemed simple, straightforward, above all, done?
We should be so lucky...
Remember that apartment we flew all the way to Osaka to find? Turns out that it's not a done deal and the issue is most likely the fact that we are foreigners (gaijin).
But I've learned a thing or two in the past couple of weeks which I will share in the days to come.
But for today I would simply like to draw your attention to this excellent video about FATCA by Robert Morris. Morris is also the author of FATCA and the New Birth of American Empire - the book is available in the usual places and you can read my review here.
