In my spare time in the last weeks I’ve enjoyed watching a lot of open skies and cloudscapes above the distant hills, plus the visual spectacle and ritual Ozumo September basho in Tokyo! Mongolian Ozeki Harumafuji gets a promotion after winning all fifteen matches, becoming the third Mongolian Yokozuna in a row, after the Hawaiians before, giving the other Yokozuna Hakuhou a bit of respite. It has been fun to watch him come up the ranks and use all sorts of techniques to overcome his smaller size disadvantage.
