Halong Bay, Vietnam ハロン湾 ベトナム

For Golden Week I got the chance to spend five days in Hanoi, Vietnam. It was a great country with really nice people and excellent food. Here is a picture of me with the guys at Halong Bay.

And here is a bowl of pho that was only about ¥150!

Oh!…and the beer was about ¥70!

I can see Vietnam in my future. Ha ha!

Winter Olympics drone light show

They used 1218 drones for this awesome light show at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics. It’s pretty impressive how far drones have come in recent years. I wonder how they prevent unlicensed drones from filming the Olympics in outdoor events these days. They probably use other drones to take them down.

Cat investigates a printer

Curiosity doesn’t always kill the cat, but he might fall off a table.

Cash in the trash

Due to the increasing number of elderly people dying alone, many of their belongings are thrown away without being inspected. Sometimes they keep a lot of cash at home without telling their families, and it ends up getting thrown away.

Pigeon takes the JR

Just a pigeon on his way to work. I wonder if he has a commuter pass.

Elephant communication

Elephant sanctuary staff believe that an elephant heard about their sanctuary from another elephant, and used that second-hand knowledge to seek help after being shot by poachers.
