The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Actually there are currently two white guys in the rank of ozeki (大関). The more famous, and more handsome, one is Kotoōshū (琴欧洲), a Bulgarian. He was the European GR wrestling at age 14, later became overweight and because of that failed to qualify to take part in 2000 Olympic, you know why he joined Sumo (and he gained even more weight before he was promoted to Ozeki). The other guy is Baruto (把瑠都), a Estonia and a former national Judo Champ. Our world is getting smaller...:):)
