Article: On getting it right in Japan
"In a tiny tapas place in Kyoto, while drinking perfectly poured cañas — small draft beers — and eating deep-fried croquetas de jamón, I reach for a napkin, which turns out to be just a thin sheet of waxy paper that doesn't so much absorb oil as push it toward another, cleaner, part of my hand.
"I think these are Spanish napkins," Gonzalo, my Bilbao-born companion, says in disbelief." 
(4000 words, Wall Street Journal)
