Somewhere on a train in Japan:
Y: Excuse me.
You look like an American.
Z: Well, I'm from Canada.
I hope I didn't offend you.
Z: No problem.
You speak English pretty well?
Y: It's one of my hobbies.
What brings you to Japan?
Z: Oh, I'm not really sure why.
It's a long story.
I seem to be making a bother of myself.
Z: No, not really.
Y: Are you finding your way around okay?
Z: Well enough.
I'm just traveling randomly, really.
Y: You mean, no plans, no schedule?
I like to travel.
But I don't like canned tours.
Y: Canned tours?
Everything decided in advance.
You only go where everybody goes,
see what everybody sees.
Y: So you want to go where your friends haven't been?
and see things they haven't seen?
Y: That's very interesting.
Isn't it a little dangerous?
Z: I don't carry much money with me.
That helps me stay out of trouble.
