The Marioby, Or There and Back again

June 27, 2009

My last posts may have triggered a few questions. Where have I been in Japan ? Am I just bragging and recycling pictures I found on the Internet ? To answer these questions, I’m offering a quick overview of my journey, complete with pictures of, not me obviously, since I like to stay in the shadows of this blog. Who then ? The now world-famous Marioby. Yup, a hippo. Since the camera loves it, it is starring in quite a few pictures. It’s been forgotten in Hakata, Himeji and Osaka though. I’ll highlight some of the places shown later with more serious pictures…

    Yes, which was made possible by comfortable trains that run on time. More on that later…

    Thank you, my hippo and I are glad you appreciate 😀
