It didn't work. Isn't it 'html' at the end?

You're welcome. You might want to bring some money. I just ran down to the mini mart in the basement where I paid 105 yen for a banana. But it was very neatly wrapped in plastic and almost looked like it was worth nearly a buck and a half.

Clippy, guessing they were making 2012's ? Any Left hand drives?

did you say 1 out of 7 off the line is a Leaf? , down from 1 out of 5?

Meaning they have slowed production?

Couldn't tell if they were '11 or '12. The way the line is set up they can build LH or RH drive interchangeably. The dash assembly is performed by workers from a subcontactor right on the line (Hello, UAW). It's placed on an assembly robot and delivered to the assembly point for the worker to install using a purpose built machine. Still missing that little piece on the bumper, though. And that little bitty window glass on the A pillar is installed very early in the assembly process.

Yes, they have slowed production. I asked that question specifically. I wasn't about to ax why.

Inroom demitasse coffee ain't cutting it. Off to vie de france for some real stuff with the rest of the gaijin. Of which there are very, very few. I've been thanked more than once for just being here.

Good for you Clippy!

I would totally be there too if I a) had the spare cash and b) didn't already take my remaining vacation days just to keep things going on the home front. Damn this recession! :(

The cantaloupe was $5-$10 USD, but the bright red cherries were $100, just for a box of 80.
