Building between Krøyers Plads and Noma

I’m not sure if this building is technically part of Krøyers Plads or not, but in any event this is a really cool neighborhood–and not just because you can jump in the water on a hot day. Much of this area of Copenhagen (Christianshavn actually) has been built in the past few years, including the bridge from Nyhavn.

応援団 for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp (広島東洋カープ)

If you ever go to a baseball game in Japan, you want to sit in the oendan (応援団). This is the cheering section, and it’s way more fun than anywhere else, even though they are the farthest from home plate. These are the cheap seats but also the fun seats.

On this hot and humid day in Hiroshima the cheap seats were sold out so I was forced to buy a seat near third base. The views were better, but the best part was that the kind, little, old Japanese lady next to me used her fan on me the entire game like I was her son or something.

My random, desktop image of the day is from three summers ago.

JDS Kashima (3508) and HMS Belfast in the Thames River

When I took today’s photo I didn’t realize its significance or rarity. I took it merely because the war ships were nicely framed by the Tower Bridge from my vantage point at the time (on a ferry boat moving in the middle of the Thames).

However, with a bit of research I realized that the Japanese navy warship, JDS Kashima, is not normally in the Thames. It squeezed under the Tower Bridge and moored alongside HMS Belfast (which is a museum in the Thames) for just a few days last summer.
