A story that shows the impact that Google maps and satelite can have, and more importantly how much more information is on our finger tips than only a couple of years ago.
A 5 year old boy falls a sleep on a train in India, wakes up 1500km later, doesn't know where he is, gets taken to an orphanage, adopted by Australians, grows up in Tasmania, and with the help of Google maps many many years later manages to find his family!

Een verhaal dat niet alleen zien hoe enorm de impact is van Google maps en sateliet beelden, maar ook hoe ontzettend veel informatie nu direct onder onze vingertopjes ligt.
Een 5 jaar oud jongetje valt in slaap in de trein in Indie. 1500km later wordt hij wakker, helemaal verdwaald. Een weeshuis vindt hem, neemt hem op en uiteindelijk vindt hij een plaats bij pleegouders in Tasmanie. Met herineringen aan z'n jeugd en met Google maps kan hij jaren, jaren later opeens de puzzelstukjes weer bij elkaar brengen en weet hij zijn familie terug te vinden.

Great to see a good little restaurant inside a major shopping centre. Ramen was good, did not quite live up to the hype though. I enjoyed mine but my friend's was rather salty. She had the Akamaru Shinaji. Price wise, I'd say a little dear for noodles but the service was well worth it. Staff was super friendly. We went there on a Thursday night and it was packed. We didn't have to wait long though and to my surprise, when we came in, it was not crowded at all. Kudos to Ippudo for not cramming too many tables in. We wont go there every week but would definitely come back.
