    Before the tsunami

    have to cluck

    [​IMG]

    So this is disorganised, but I see folk are thinking of going to Zao. A day trip from here.
    Well, 2 years after the tsunami we drove up to Matsushima and normality seemed restored. It was freaking busy.
    I've found some before and after pics.
    Wave was only 3.8metre high in town, but the beachside places obviously were wasted and many people died.
    Matsushima was protected by the islands that are said to have driven Basho to tears.

    Well, Ian D, this may terminally cramp my style. Perhaps I can live outside the law and still be honest.

    Now nothing makes any sense at all.
    So you can embed it (whatever that means), but you can't rename it.
    Must be some way out of this stultification, or is that some kind of joke?

    WTH it's too early to stop now.

    On the road again, maybe by old postal towns, on the byways heading somewhere, most likely North.
    Apologies to Celine.
    Merry Xmas and Happy New Year, when ever that is for you.

    My chronometer read 2/2/2014 1643.
    14 Earth Standard Days to planetfall.
    The topography looked suitably stratovolcanic. I was quite impressed, this new Planetary Simulator sure was flash. The Supreme Squadron Leader had all the other Commanders complaining about doing simulation time, some of the bolder calling her a dragon even.
    She just calls me her little lizard and I smile.
    The system's sun shone rather too hotly on the scales of the nape of my neck for a winter I reckoned and the shadows fell not enough to the North. And where was all the freaking white stuff, the frozen H2O?
    A sniff had my nasal chips reading 21C atmospheric temperature.
    The flash new simulator had stuffed up, this was the wrong bloody hemisphere. Dumb arse machine.
    I was felled to ground by vertigo as the shadows lengthened and twisted about and the temperate fell to 10C in Earth Standard seconds.
    I'd forgotten the latest simulators could read your mind.
    While I was down there on the simulated ground I checked all my blasters for the umpteenth time.
    Once more a warm blooded Haemomin species would have to be taught about climate change the hard way.

    Geez, the simulator sulked for almost a whole ES week before it would let me back in.
    Meanwhile, an old egg clutch mate seconded to the Elite Iguanas told me that our raid will be just a feint. The real objective is to rescue one of the legendary lost kings, from somewhere else in the planets Northern hemisphere, a Parisfrance.
    So I get back in the simulator at last and this is what I get...

    They don't pay a battle hardened space reptile enough galactic credits I reckon.
