poisoning feeding pigeons in the park kamakura


Lane feeding a pigeon in KamakuraWe had a great trip to Kamakura this weekend, where my former student Kotaro Ai and his wife Midori--along with their 3-year-old daughter Yuki and their newborn son (whose name I have, to my dismay, forgotten)--gave us a wonderful tour.

This was one of the high points of the trip for Lane, in large part because of Kotaro's generosity. In addition to spending most of Saturday showing us around, he arranged for rickshaw rides for us--which was a wonderful experience for all of us, but especially Lane.

After the rickshaw ride, we went by train to see the Great Buddha (Daibutsu) of Kamakura, which we also really enjoyed.

Kamakura is really beautiful, and I hope we have a chance to return again to explore it further.

I'm exhausted now, having finally finished my grading (w00t!), so I'm off to bed (it's midnight here in Tokyo). Tomorrow I'm off to meet Ado for coffee in Akasaka, then back to Kawaski to pack our bags, then back to Akasaka for Dan Gillmor's Tokyo blogger gathering.

I'll try to find some time in there to write about our wonderful (for me; not so great for Lane) trip to the hot springs in Hakone. In the meantime, here are some photos from Kamakura.


Any chance the title of this weblog entry is a Tom Lehrer reference?

I'm glad *somebody* got that! :)

es, it's a reference to the classic Lehrer song, "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park."
