here i am jogging...

(ps, i don't own the rights to this photo so I may be doing some time in the big-house... so long everyone...)

ps, do you think the bib number recognition is done by computer or by human? i would guess by computer. the photographers would be instructed to try to get a clear shot of the bib number

The smaller menu is for whale

The bigger one is for tuna. No fat, medium fat, extra fat and seared.
Super delicious. Fatty is actually more expensive. The old taxi driver
told us it was a gyp and the red tuna is the best kind. I think he
might be right. I didn't try the whale.

Temple festival

They dress in traditional costumes and carry these mobile temples all
around town for hours in a rhythmical slow jog while chanting and
beating drums. Back at the temple there are games for the kids, great
things to eat and entertainment on a stage


Totally utterly insane. I have never been more terrified. Google
Eejanaika for details.

dismantling a giant gundam is slow going

I thought I might take a photo of the park where the giant gundam used
to be and what do you know, it's still there! How sweet is that?! It's
head is gone and his arms are packed up. But holy wow. Four million
people went to see it in two months. But not so many saw it being
taken apart! o_O ^_^
