Japanese efficiency

Today, I made a request to my university's library to get a new book, title 'Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea ', written about the lives people live in North Korea.

I sent out the request at 3pm, and 2 hours later at 5pm I received a mail on my phone from the library's head , saying that they will buy the book that I requested.

Not only the English version, he said that he will bring in the Japanese version of that book too, in less than 2 hours!

After 4 years living here, it is a country that still showing me things that I've never experienced , and it never fails to surprise me.
