    Renting a semi-automatic motorbike and two helmets for a day: 10 dollars.

    Realizing an hour later that the helmet that came with the deal is actually a replica of a Nazi helmet: Bizarre.

    I seriously have no idea why, but a lot of people up here are riding around with these ridiculous things on their heads. World War II is certainly very well known here – we rode across an old Japanese airfield that sits in the middle of the town today. Perhaps the helmets are just the cheapest things around? One thing’s for sure: don’t bet on seeing me wearing Nazi insignia on this blog any time soon again.
