    Pell is a tool, just a stain of a person.

    The stories of child abuse are horrifying and deeply upsetting.

    The wood cedar or otherwise will not really absorb any great degree of moisture from the shoe.
    Dry newspaper stuffed into it will absorb sweat to an extent if you sweat excessively.
    The shoe tree helps prevent the sole from curling up into pixie shoes, tends to straighten out the creases in the shoe and stop the leather shrinking.

    For those tasks the approximately correctly sized tree is best, but mostly the tree straightens the shoe out.
    For the actual tasks the shoe tree performs rather than the mystical ones, a plastic, polished /varnished wooden one, or an aluminium or metal shoe tree (or even stuffing with newspaper) will work just as well.

    edit:: I cant find it but I seem to remember someone got 2 x cedar shoe trees - dropped one in a bucket of water for a few hours then weighed them and found virtually no difference in weight.

    Further Kyoto love. Today's visit was to Arashiyama district, with its beautiful bamboo forest and the World Heritage listed Tenryu-Ji temple complex.

    I can't recall my list from Phuket, but the Bangkok list reads like this:


    Roast (for breakfast)
    Roots Coffee
    Both of the above are at a collective called The Commons
    Thai Lao Ye (Isaan cuisine)
    Q and A Bar (cocktails)
    Karmakamet Diner (more for instagram than the food)
    Soulfood Mahanakorn (Thai food)
    Asia Herb and Healthworld for massages


    The coffee scene in Bangkok is off the hook. There are some guides on coffee places - there are just heaps.

    What's that bar/club that's up on top of a skyscraper, with an outdoor deck with amazing views?

    Actually, I think that there are a couple of them, but there's one called "Sky Bar" or something like that, which is up on top of a hotel on the 63rd floor.
