Well, isn’t this an interesting experiment. Somehow I’ve been coerced by Shyam into looking after his two pet turtles for the next ten days while he is travelling around Japan.

Why? I hear you ask.

For Shyam, Japan is country he’s always dreamed of visiting, a place that he’d seen pictures of in books as a kid that stirred an emotion in him that no thing and no person had previously managed. It instils a certain combination of awe, curiosity and a strange kind of caution that many won’t experience in everyday life. Some say Shyam has found a unique place on Earth where he can really experience this life. I feel like he’s finally returning home.

And the turtles?

No fucking idea.

Thanks Shyam for the picture. Of course I’ll mind your little mutant ninjas.
