The power supply in my PC has snuffed it, so I’m back to my old, trusty laptop for the time being. It’s going to cost me around 10,000 yen to get it replaced and I also have to get my PC to the shop (taxi!) so it’s going to be a fun week or so with this (rather slow) machine to suffice for my online urges. It goes to show that you should never throw things out!!

Anyway, here’s an interesting collection of stories from people who’ve been scammed while traveling. I’m getting a lot out of it, and I’m sure if you’re interested in traveling, you will too!
