“Mutant Frog Travelogue” started as a site for Roy Berman’s online travel photos. He then joined forces with translator Adamu; later teamed up with Saru, who shuttered his East Asian economics blog to join; and most recently, Joe left his blog “NichiNichi” to sign up as the fourth contributor to the what is probably the quirkiest blog on the Far East.
I’m friends with all the boys at MutantFrog, and their stuff from the past few days has been even more awesome than usual. So here’s an introduction for those of you who aren’t regular readers. All have a background in East Asia with a focus on Japan. They’re based across the globe: Adamu and Saru are in the US, Roy is in Taiwan, and Joe is in Japan. All have professional expertise to boot: Roy gives us the lowdown on unusual topics of interest and beautiful photography; Saru is the econ guru; Joe focuses on law topics and Adamu, a translator by trade, writes about everything else (lots of juicy current event analysis). Educational and entertaining in one healthy dose, it’s probably the best East Asian blog around.
