Like everyone else, I don't update it enough. 

Wellbourne Tower

I knew the Wellbourne name, of course. Everyone in "society" did. The Wellbourne family has libraries, concert halls, roads, hell, even capitols with their name plastered all over them.

What I didn't know was that their name was also well-known far from all that.

A recent work trip took me from "society" to the Far East. Professional diligence took me off the beaten tourist paths. Non-professional curiosity took me deep into local neighborhoods, where the signs in shop windows were in scripts I'd never seen in several decades of travel.

There, sandwiched between a stall selling some kind of food (as best as I can tell) and what I believe to be a house of "ill-repute" stood Wellbourne Tower.

What the hell is it doing here?
