WAVERTON – LETTER FROM JAPAN

GEORGE PALMER HAS RECENTLY TRAVELLED TO JAPAN TO MEET COMPANIES THAT WE OWN AND MANY THAT WE DON’T.

Due to some odd airline scheduling it is difficult to sleep on the way to Tokyo which makes the 7AM arrival and a full day of meetings more of a challenge.  The most recent occasion had an extra frisson as I turned my phone on to the news item – North Korea ballistic missile currently flying over Japan.  Not even concerns about nuclear war starting less than 800 miles away can halt the jetlag of that flight however.
