Last Week, the Outtakes
There was a lot more to last week than the birdie dance. In fact, it was a week of inimitable rakishness. Here are the outtakes. I traveled across a large part of Japan last week, hitting the golf hotspots of Chiba and Hyogo, stopping at Kanagawa and Yamaguchi and Fukuoka as well, riding innumerable trains, and eating. How about nama oysters the size of dinner plates, and kujira sashimi?
For that matter, how about kujira bacon?
It looks a bit like a sliced radish, but the taste is rather different.
Whatever it was, I finished 5th in the golf tournament against a strong field on a day so hot (liquefyingly so, it felt) that the caddie was giving us ice packs to place on our heads. To keep our brains from melting, apparently. I obviously scored a victory against the elements, if not against the field, so I’m marking my card as undefeated so far in August.
