As we are travelling for a whole year, we can`t get loads of souvenirs. But we`ve picked up a couple of things from Japan that are easily transportable and also practical.
As you can see, the heat is getting to us, so I`ve opted for the pretty fan and Mr Beet has gone for a little towel. Lots of people here always have a little towel to hand to wipe their sweaty faces, and Mr Beet`s face is one of the sweatiest around. He`s delighted with his towel. A wise man once wrote that the most important thing for a hitchhiker (or backpacker) is to know where his towel is. Mr Beet is now inseparable from his and is much happier (and hoopier) as a result.
