must admit to not being the greatest fan of museums, but there
was one in Tokyo that I just could not afford to miss. Last Friday
we made a special trip downtown in order to pay homage to the
Meguro Parasitological Museum, that's right, the only museum
in the world devoted to parasites.
highlights for me were the 8.8m tapeworm that one poor man had the
misfortune to play host to (he found it's head sticking out when
going to the toilet one day), and a lovely photo of a man who had
an infection in his testicles - his scrotum almost scrapes the ground!
here if you want to see the truly disgusting photo
- but be warned that it is not pleasant! Anyhow, moving swiftly
