bridge construction

James hasn't quite got pizza construction sorted. The day before our symposium started, his latest attempt levered out my temporary dental bridge. So I got to scare the visitors throughout the symposium with my inability to say "F". I wonder if that's why they were all so well behaved. Anyway, on Friday it was back to Tsurumi dental hospital for some more construction.


The good news is that it may all get finished in mid-September.

...unlike the bridge construction near work, which, if the signs are to be believed wont be finished for another year or so! I can only assume that the final thing is to be more than just random bridging.
Note that some extra bridges have been added since earlier this month.

Dressed for the weekend...

weekend jules
But all grey(ish) above...
S10 meeting
If I was better at Japanese it wouldn't have been so bad - 5 minutes from every sub-leader in the ICA-RUS project...
At least there was a giraffe...
Tokyo giraffe
Last month we saw a real giraffe in Yokohama. It was a little surreal... spotted between the skyscrapers through the picture windows as we were enjoying medicinal steak at TGI Friday's. Eventually we worked out that we were looking down on a circus. An elephant appeared at one point too. Anyway, only metal giraffes to be found today, although of course you never know what might be lurking inside the skyscrapers...

Up the hill...

On the top...
bikie and Fuji-san
Yes, James has successfully bribed me to keep working for a few more months. Bikie came by internets, from Germany.
lake reflection
Very important to securely lock my expensive new bikie!! I think I've got it about right - same bit of string lock seems to be preferred by the local carbon fibre racer-boyz.
bicycle love
Typical Saturday morning in Kamakura...

Let's Symposium

It is very hard to tell whether climate scientists are enjoying themselves. What do you think?

For 12 years I've admired this big old house from the back of the mountain tandem. But now James is doing his silly running, I have control of my brakes, so it is possible to stop and take photos!

old house
But the thing that made me actually stop was the meeting of old and new Japan. These are the shocking next door neighbours to the old house, that appeared a few years ago. Bet each house has a Stepford wife inside.
