We’ve received an update on the travels and adventures of the intrepid David and Janet Carle as they do the ground work behind their upcoming THE 38th PARALLEL: A WATER LINE AROUND THE WORLD, which is scheduled to be published in 2012. They’re still in Japan, talking to people about tsunami recovery and the restoration of the Japanese Crested Ibis. Follow each of the links to read the updates on their blog, Parallel Universe 38°N: The Water Line.

Barring the authors writing a final blog entry to summarize things, these will likely be the last blog updates they make until their book publishes.
