Momofuku Ando (安藤百福): Father of Cup o' Noodles

Mr. Ando, the man who single-handedly saved many U.S. college students from certain starvation, passed away on January 5, 2007, at the age of 96.

Just one more reason to visit Japan: The Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum in Osaka (admission free!), which sounds as if it could vie with Tokyo's Meguro Parasitological Museum (the world famous museum of parasites!) for title of the most unusual place I've ever visited. I'll let you know.

Cheers for now,
