drunken conversation with a random Japanese man:
guy: “you foreigners have really big noses”
I: “yeah, but you wouldn’t believe all the things we can smell”
I: “well, I imagine you can smell the cedars, the exhaust from that car that just passed, and maybe some deer shit if you’re really good, but thats about it, right? Well, right now I can smell all sorts of food from the restaurants all the way up in Kashihara (1 hour away by car).
guy: “holy shit.”
