“it would be very strange to say "I forgot my umbrella" on a bright sunny day.” (Chapter 2)

On the background that Go has its roots in China, it should be mentioned that this wouldn't be strange at all.
In China it is common to protect against the sun with an umbrella.

Human knowledge is relative to the culture we are familiar with.

you're right, we didn't consider this. there will be a Chinese translation - so hopefully the translators will pick that up. thanks
