Indiana Jones

I have to leave our Open Campus early to go to the University of Hiroshima to bumble my way through a talk. I go Naha-Fukuoka on an aircraft, subway to main train station, Shinkasen to Hiroshima, then  change to second Shinkasen to Higashi-Hiroshima.

So what? you enquire. Well, believe me a lot can go wrong negotiating travel in Japan when you are illiterate and dumb.

When the train rolled up to the station, I looked her in the eye.

When I arrive at Higashi-Hiroshima, to be met by 2 HU folks wearing OIST T-shirts, I feel like Indiana Jones.

Delightful time at Hiroshima University characterized as usual by the extreme gentility of my hosts.
