Adventures in Akihabara

Yet another true tale of Japan!

On one of our trips to Akihabara (Tokyo's electronic, anime, and game district) my friends and got on the discussion of if life was like a video game. Anyway, the talk turned to how we did not feel challenged anymore.

Wasim—who has since returned to Japan for more challenges—issued a bit of a challenge to the powers that be to make things more difficult in his game. All in good fun.

We left the subway station and headed out to Electronics Avenue. As soon as we turned the corner, we saw one of those outdoor patio umbrellas rolling down the street in a gust of wind. It almost hit Wasim, but fortunately he dodged it in time.

Wisely, he afterwards declared that he felt sufficiently challenged and did not need anything more.

Ask and you shall receive. ^_^
