Samia Lila, a.k.a. ‘Goanna girl,’ is a French waitress on a working holiday visa who dragged a goanna from a New South Wales restaurant.

At first, Lila thought it was a canine intruder.

The goanna frightened diners.

Lila then decided to grab it and drag it out.

“I looked at it and thought it was a dog at first! But then I realised it was a goanna,” Lila said.

Surgical Mask Vending Machine

Japan is a land of vending machines. You can find vending machines on just about any street corner in cities. They mainly sell beverages, but the ubiquitous machines also sell a vast array of other items, including gifts, toys, fresh eggs, rice, birth control, cigarettes, beer, costumes and even surgical masks, as shown here.

Arse Wind?

Walking along Route 246, I was surprised to look up and see the katakana script reading アースウィンド!
 びっくり仰天だった!
アースis, in English, arse…or, so I thought. Arse wind, then, could only mean one thing….surely a company couldn’t have named itself after a fart?
Of course it didn’t. In fact, アース is also the reading for earth. That makes Earth Wind a little easier to comprehend, even if the English is still a little awkward.

A Model Day

Despite the icy midwinter temperature, Tokyo was gloriously sunny today.
Regardless of the day, I try to walk as much as possible.
Today’s reward was getting to see a gorgeous model having her photo taken!

ウィークエンド終わり、、、

 あっという間にまた週末が終わった。
 今週末、大好きな自転車をほとんど乗れなかった。土曜日の朝で約50キロを走ったが、それっきり、、、:(
 今日は都心へ。基本的に和太鼓嫌いが付き合いで見ることになった。最高だった!謙虚にならなきゃ。
 

Saturday Night Shibuya

After many years of not blogging, a website fix inspired me to get back into it. For several years, I had been keen on photography but let that fall by the wayside, too, mainly because carrying a camera around everywhere is bloody cumbersome and I now cycle a lot, which makes me focus on reducing the volume of stuff I carry.
Yesterday, though, I took my camera with me and shot a few pictures for the first time in a long while. I’m really rusty, but liked some of the results.
