A tale of two Travel Bugs, with an update of how I conned a friend into buying paying for sushi ..
and were first to find the Rinko Park geocache.
We didn’t have anything much to swap with the great stuff inside:
And so began “The Great Sushi Race”:
Right from the outset I had a distinct advantage, with Ebi heading off to south Japan and South Korea, whilst Futo Maki made a beeline for Narita and then landed in the UK near Sheffield. The last hop was the most tricky, but again I had the advantage with my home cache being in an urban environment and Jonathan’s literally in Back of Beyond. For that reason alone I feel bad about claiming the prize. Well, bad-ish :-)
I’m indebted to Jonathan for the TB tags and doing a far better job of recording updates of the race. We should get to meet next week at the WS-I. Pity about the quality of the sushi In Ottawa, maybe double or quits is a better bet!
So Jonathan paid out at Wasabi, here in Ottawa, after an evening geocaching. We had a witness in the shape of Ram, and very nice it was too! I particularly liked the “too cute to eat” octopus salad. As soon as Ebi is within reach, we’ll have to cook up another race for a return match.
