Use the Radioactive Ooze
A guy named Alastair Humphreys travelled around the world by bike a couple of years ago. I found out about him and his adventures when he was in China and he was looking for places to visit in Japan. I invited him to come to Tsukuba, but he ended up taking a route that didn’t pass by our fair town, so I never got to meet him. It seems that he has written a book about his journey, though, so I’m thinking about getting it. He wrote regular emails to a mailing list during his travels and they were always interesting and well written, so I’m sure the book would be a good read.
Anyway, the idea of writing about Alastair today came from a post that I saw on his blog that had me laughing out loud.
I hope you will forgive this off-topic post (well, it is at least tangentially related to Tsukuba…), but I couldn’t stop giggling, so I thought it would be a nice treat for our readers on a Sunday afternoon.
