Whales, Beavers and Snakes (Oh My!)

My family is visiting me here in Boston, and over the Independence Day weekend we toured Western Massachusetts for a few days. I captured some interesting photos. Having finally convinced myself to purchase some nice lenses for my SLR, I am particularly pleased with this haul.

Sakura Teppanyaki

Yesterday I went to the Sakura Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き) Restaurant in Durham with a group of friends, and it was by far the most interesting meal I have ever had. In a teppanyaki restaurant the chef prepares the food on a large, flat heated stainless steel surface in the middle of the diners' table, in an utterly fascinating performance. It started with a ceiling-high plume of fire, and our chef looked like he was having fun, deftly juggling eggs and cooking implements, and using them to play little tunes on the cooking surface!

Wear-Rats

I saw a Wear-rat on the riverback at 8.07pm. Bold as brass, it sauntered across a relatively busy pathway. It was easily 20cm long excluding tail, with sleek dark-light brown-flecked fur.
