Hi Blog.  I got a call today from a self-described “religious checker of”, who was getting worried about my welfare after so few blog updates recently.  Well, as the clock runs down on August 2010, let me just say I just got back minutes ago from travels with a friend in the Hokkaido Outback.  Points of interest:  Biei, Monbetsu, Maruseppu, Saromako, Abashiri, Yanbetsu, Utoro, Shiritoko Goko and Kamuiwakka, Notsuke Hantou, Nemuro, Nosappu Misaki, Kiritappu, Akkeshi, and back.  Drove the 550 kms circuitously between Nemuro back to Sapporo today through a gorgeous day, a great way to round off the journey (if not a bit tiring, all at once) that totaled 1700 kms.  Back to work, got a JT column due next week and some other writing projects to get on with before trips to Tokyo and Canada in September and October.  Sorry to do fewer updates last month, we’ll try to do better in September.  Thanks for reading and caring, Readers.  Arudou Debito back in Sapporo

  • Hey, how come my joke computer script didn’t come out?
    Sorry to do less updates last month
    That should read “fewer updates”.
