Discovering Japan

Said Paul Theroux II

But: All journeys were return journeys.  The farther one traveled, the nakeder one got, until, towards the end, ceasing to be animated by any scene, one was most oneself, a man in a bed surrounded by empty bottles.

The man who says, ‘I’ve got a wife and kids’ is far from home; at home he speaks of Japan.  But he does not know – how could he – that the changing scenes… are nothing compared to the change in himself.”

–Paul Theroux, The Great Railway Bazaar
