Tour NYC With Mystery Tourist

Link

Only focus on NYC, and way cheaper than Matt. I suspect that he is a resident as he has too many outfits for a tourist.

Iran - Please stop the violence

It has been a very disturbing weekend. Despite the censorship, we are getting lots of reports via the internet. Even the media like CNN and BBC are using them. Most disturbing are not the new media like Twitter but from YouTube, where the death of some of the protesters are taken via the camera phone video and manages to bypass the internet restriction impose by the authorities .

Another Man Killed in Tehran

Whatever the government is trying to do to prevent the protest, it is unforgivable killing their own citizens using real bullets. My heart goes out to them.

Climb Mt. Fuji from Yamanashi and get a certificate in any 4 languages

image

(via Japan Probe)

Get a certificate in one of the 4 languages (English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese), but only if you go from Yamanashi instead of Shizuoka. At 3776 metres (12388 ft), the mountain can be scaled without mountaineering equipment due to it’s gentle volcanic slope but only during the summer months (July and August).

Looks like a interesting challenge if you are planning to visit Japan.
