What's going on in Japan??

I just read that Shinzo Abe has resigned! I leave the country for one minute.. I thought this sort of thing only happened in Bolivia! Actually, I wish our country's leaders were similarly capable of buckling to public pressure. Whatever Japan's faults, its leadership always seems prepared to reorganize itself when necessary. I am once again aghast at the consequences American foreign policy has, directly and indirectly, on the rest of the world. I guess I feel connected to the countries I've visited, so I always react with alarm to big news like this. Last year, I probably wouldn't have cared.

Did I mention that I saw vicunas in the Cordillera Huayhuash?
