Ben’s Place of the Week – from the OUP blog

First of all, yes, Oxford University Press does, in fact have a blog, and it’s pretty good. One of the features is Ben’s Place of the Week, where Ben Keene, the editor of the Oxford Atlas of the World, highlights a different place around the world with interesting little facts and a link for more information about each place. For example, this week’s place, Tsukiji, Japan, is home to the Tsukiji Market, a giant wholesale fish market where they sell over 400 types of fresh fish to feed the hungry masses of Tokyo.

If you have a spare minute, check out some of the places that Ben has featured.
