Nikko, days 3 and 4

Third day started from breakfast too ;)



Nikko, day 2

Breakfast on day two.



Went to Japan, first day in Nikko

Earlier this month we went to Japan, for an extended period of time too.

This trip started with a visit to Nikko in the hopes to catch some of the fall colors there.

On November 7th our plane has arrived and for a change we used Keisei Skyliner to get out of Narita:

Short business trip to Beijing and Tokyo at the end of February - beginning of March 2013

With some more travel coming out soon, I decided to catch up on some earlier travels.

This short post will cover my short trip to Beijing and Tokyo that I had early this year.

When turtles attack

I woke today and found something red floating in our pond, so decided to check on it.

Even approaching the pond I saw something was terribly wrong, water lily pads were floating all acrosss pond apparently severed from the roots.

Some looking around revealed the culprint in not yet powered on skimmer:

It was a snapping turtle.


Walking in Hollywood

Continuing our description of the trip to Los Angeles during Anime Expo 2012. We decided to dedicate one day to Hollywood and some part of LA in general.

IDEX 2013

We just returned from IDEX 2013 in Orlando, Florida and it was a blast!

IDEX is a US doll show for various kinds of dolls and the conference was held on Apr 12-14 just across the road from Universal Studios park.

Initially we decided to go there after hearing that VOLKS will be attending too.

A line formed in the morning to get all the limited items. Surprisingly many people got in line for items other than VOLKS dolls ;)


Anime Expo 2012

With a huge delay, here's our report from Anime Expo 2012 that happened at the July 4th weekend in 2012.

AX'12 badges and poster
This year we came to AX as premier members again hoping for as great experience as in 2011, but reality made it's own corrections.


Trip to Salt Lake City, Supercomputing 2012

After a big delay, finally I got around to publishing our report about visiting Salt Lake City in November 2012.

The winter certainly could be felt there unlike previous year in Seattle, for example.

Android BBQ 2012

Just last week we have visited a party for Android developers called Android BBQ. It was held in Dallas Fort Worth in October 2012.

First day we arrived pretty late and almost missed dinner, but luckily were still allowed to order even though the restaurant was supposed to close.
