good luck with your work in japan. i really enjoyed working there. i am sure you have considered the implications of a major economy let-down. i worked in 2000, just after a major downturn, and it wasn't pretty.

also, i have a question about your roth investment. i also live overseas and understand that i am not allowed to invest in a roth as my income is tax-emempt. is your second job based state-side and taxed, hence your ability to participate? is it a job in japan that allows such investments? i am in a bit of a quandry as to how/if i should allocate my money differently because of my exempt status. any advice?

$20,000 for a wedding is a safe estimate, depending heavily on many factors, especially location and how much your mother-in-law gets involved!!! (can you tell i am in the wedding-planning process right now? it has its moments, my friend...)

buenos suerte,

jon p
