I had one hell of a new year. My family I spent the night at Hakone in one of the onsen hotels. It was pure bliss lazing in the outdoor bath. Right next door there was a full on party of about 8 drunk rich Russians. We were invited over and we drank all their champange - Moet. After about 5 hours of drinking I decided to go to bed but they wouldn't let me go without an arm wrestle. It was very funny because I was really drunk by then and kept on winning. My wife eventually came back to rescue me at about 7.00 in the morning. We then went straight to breakfast where I fell asleep at the table. My Russian friends woke me up and my wife and daughter had checked out and gone home. I guess they were angry with me.
