We visited Japan in 2014 and what we missed most, was the "washlet"
Definitively it is the most civilized toilet in the world. We bought one online and had it installed right away. It should be mandatory in all hospitals and nursing homes and also for people with disabilities.

When the woman works on building a career, then can afford to have hired help to take care of the home...It is the way women around the world do it.. My mother did it, worked full time and always had a maid doing the hard house chores...when my Mom came home, the house was clean and the food made..She could relax with the 5 children and the husband..The weekends were free to all the family to share time and have fun.
By the way, we were not rich...just a regular working class family...buy My mom reasoned that she made per hour enough to contribute to the house finances, including the help, and have the best of both worlds..
Once the daughters were a bit older, we helped with the house chores and taking care of the younger siblings.
It is all a matter of being organized and having your priorities straight..
For me things are different, as I am lucky to have understanding husband that shares all the chores with me, so I can work outside the house and have my career. We both take care of the house and our kid and enjoy more free time together that way..

I watched the game and can say Japan controlled the ball better..the British were very rough and not too precise. The Japanese were great stealing balls and played fearless....The best won, regardless..I can't wait for the final game!

I had the chance to visit Macchu Pichu last year and they have an average of 4000 visitors each day...I didn't see litter anywhere...what I did see were teams of young people wearing yellow t-shirts, patrolling the site and collecting any single piece of trash they found...resulting in a spotless mountain and ruins.. And this is Peru...the rest of the world can learn from them...

In Costa Rica we have ID number since 1948. You get it at birth and identify you for every path in life...the same number is used for your :cedula" (ID) also your driver's license, passport, health care ....very efficient...I was surprised to learn Japan didn't have this system...

“The problem is when we go back there will probably not be enough business seats available. If that’s the case we will be in premium again.”
Why not just switching the seats around? let the men go back in economy...
