I had one of my dreams come true in Tokyo. I got to go to the Sumo matches. There is a big arena in Ryogoku. I saw on television that it was the time of the year when the matches are held. I was doing some drawings near the stadium and noticed people were going in. I bought a ticket for the afternoon matches. There are not so many people there at that time because it is not the big important matches but I was still excited. I also took a few photos of the wrestlers working out in the street in front of their live-in training facility. There is a certain smell in the air which I found out was their hair gel. The world is a very interesting place.
