Hello there

Allow me to introduce myself: I am the anonymous author behind the Muzuhashi blog, and was just writing to say a) thank you for reading and b) thank you for this fascinating post about Alan Booth.

I was particularly impressed with the fact that you have managed to track down so many of Booth's more obscure works (not to mention amazed that it is still possible to buy some of them). As it happens, my father was a secondhand bookseller and my mother a librarian, so I know a lot about sifting through dusty shelves of old books, although I assume that over the years, your quest for Booth collectables came to involve more in the way of internet than physical searches.

I am also thoroughly in awe of your journey to retrace 'The Roads to Sata', and am now following you on Twitter. The very best of luck to you, and I shall look forward to reading more of this blog upon your return.

All the best
Muzuhashi (actually feel free to call me Tom - I'm not too fussed about being shrouded in mystery any more!)

Hi Tom,

Thanks very much for the kind comments and for keeping tabs on me via Twitter. Always good to have some company and especially company that knows what life on the road is like, as you do given your bike journeys.

A bit pressed for time now as you can imagine, and for the time being I just wanted to say thanks before too much time passed.

p.s. Any plans to re-activate the blog?
