Meeting Mr. Lal

My first day in Sapporo, my third day in Japan, I was lucky enough to meet up with Lal, a very cool guy who’s been out there online for years — about 6 years, as he notes, of contact on the Culture List (and I think he showed up on the Brin-L too) and who happened to be in Sapporo studying. It was a great evening, though a pity there was only one chance to meet. Just before he caught the subway back to his dorm to finish packing, he asked a random passerby to take this picture. And there you are: my best highlight for Sapporo, 2007.

Though, as Lime noted, I look awful in the picture. Those shirts are really comfortable for hiking or whatever, but they look, um, well, they’re not made for the bigger among us. Such as me.

  1. Gord, maybe this isn’t the best place to leave you a message, but you wanted me to let you know about this year’s Medieval conference. It will take place on November 9-10, somewhere in Korea, but I don’t yet know where. When I find out, I’ll let you know.

    The theme is “translation,” and I’ll also be speaking.

    Nice photo, by the way…

  2. Jeffrey,

    Thanks! I’ll be interested in hearing more when more information is available!

    Thanks! BTW I think the picture shows too much gut. I forgot to suck it in. Ah well…
