I met Michael in Tokyo...maybe. by Mystic Traveller on 7 June 2013 3:40pm
 
I was being interviewed by a journalist about my work as a photographer, as well as my Free Burma activism, at a bar in Tokyo. The journalist started to indicate that Michael Palin was behind me. As a Palin fan, I found myself taking sneaky looks at the fellow behind me, scrawling frantically into a notebook. It looked like him, and both the journalist and I were certain it was. This was wildly exciting for me, because his programmes have influenced so many of my own travels.

When the man decided to leave, the journalist could not resist to ask the man if he was indeed Palin. In a light American accent, he politely denied he was. I asked him that he must be asked that all the time, as it was more than uncanny. He chuckled in a Palinesque way and left.

I would love to know if it was Mr. Palin or not.

Who knows, maybe it was him?

Interesting article on your interview!

If it were him, I can't blame him avoiding endless, needless chitchat.

Both the journalist and I have spoken since, and we are more than convinced it was him. Oh, is there anyway to find an answer? Michael?
