All roads lead to Berlin. 

My second favourite city behind Melbourne.

Have you been to the Ramones Cafe/Museum? If not, go!! It’s a great way to while away a couple of hours.  I loved Berlin and love Melbourne, but my favourite city is Tokyo… it has everything and more.

I’d suggest people use a VPN like ExpressVPN which is expensive but does seem to work - my friend in Bali uses it (and the people at ExpressVPN are very helpful if you have problems). There are a couple of others which I believe will also work: Surfshark and Nord but I’ve not used them.

Will be watching in Ho Chi Minh, my GF access? (if we get there) Haven't decided who gets it yet.

Are you living there. I’ve been based Vung Tau until Covid. Back in Melbourne for September!

Clearly a man of discerning taste you are.

However, the next question would be: which area in Tokyo do you like the most? That will definitely say a lot about you!

Where do I start? I love the Kabuki-Cho area of Shinjuku, particularly the narrow bar lined lanes toward Hanazono Shrine, parts of Tawaramachi near Asakusa where there are streets full of shops selling display ‘food’. Parts of Asakusa I like, and a great memory was going to one of the oldest restaurants in Tokyo, the Sometarō okonomiyaki restaurant.

When I first stayed in Tokyo, Yoyogi Park near Harajuku used to have the street running through it, lined with bands and rockabilly dancers, all performing at the same time. The problem is that the noise police moved in and now only the rockabilly dancers are still there.

Places I avoid are Roppongi and, to an extent, Ginza. But Akihabara (the electronics district) is enjoyable if done in moderation; best time being on the weekends they close off the street and you’ll see a lot of cosplay action going on, and the Meido (Maid) Cafes are definitely pretty out there.

Just an unusual aside:

As I mentioned earlier, I’ll be in Bali until the morning AFTER our first final🙄. and I was relieved that the ABC has a coverage here on the hotel room tv ,however I was amazed to discover the Storm game televised live last night without ANY commentary.. the only audible sounds were from the referees and a few errant swear words from players.

I’m not sure whether this would be preferable to hearing BT’s ramblings and histrionics… oh wait.

Am in Helsinki for 1st Final, fast streaming net and mad sports friends, Sudan for the Grand Final sadly, will use a diplomat mates house for the fast net there.

Watch AFL is ok, sometime the sound doesn’t run the same as the picture which can be frustrating.

As in Helsinki Sweden?

The Swedes are the Nordic surrender monkeys who gave up Finland to the Russians in 1809, Helsinki, Finland since 1917 Hyva Suomi. Spent the summer (now) teaching the Finns to kick a Sherrin

I am in India, in Chennai to be exact. Don't know anyone else  here and so it's just me watching on WatchAFL. Would love to have some company. Drinks on me if a Dees fan in Chennai can hit me up

Sorry DF, I was coming from a different angle.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
