Christmas with Abe
Sunday, December 31, 2006
Japan's first lady is a blogger. Akie Abe, 44 year-old wife of the prime minister Shinzo Abe, blogs on the personal side of politics at http://www.abe-akie.jp/. She has posted pictures of the Christmas bauble given to her by Laura Bush, and her husband reaching for the usual slimy rubbish that often passes for Japanese food on Christmas eve.
It is a very feminine affair, placing Mrs Abe firmly within the conventional doting wife role you'd expect in Japan. Her husband rules the country and she busies herself with, err, porridge:
"My husband had a Cabinet meeting in the morning, but returned to the residence for lunch and we had porridge. I'd like to spend the day relaxing," she wrote on Sunday.
